NCATS Staffers Serve Dinner at Children's Inn
The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) sponsored its second dinner of the year at the Children’s Inn at NIH on Sept. 6 and a dozen staff members were at the inn for kitchen patrol.
When the call went out for volunteers, all 12 slots to cook and serve dinner on site to inn families were filled in less than 24 hours.
The menu’s theme was “summer cookout” and included hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, veggie skewers, potato salad, mac and cheese, fruit salad, watermelon, cookies and ice cream.
In addition to the NCATS volunteers who prepared and dished up the meal, staff across the center donated money to help support the dinner.
Volunteer-hosted family dinners typically take place nightly, Monday through Thursday, with arrival for volunteers as early as 3 p.m. and cleanup by 7 p.m.
