NIH Gives Hunger the One-Two Punch -- Feds Feed Families Update

Help NIH Knock Out Hunger- 10,000 lbs to go!

The Feds Feed Families summer food drive is winding down -- just TWO weeks to go! The NIH 2014 goal is 18,000lbs of non-perishable items and so far we have approximately 9,000lbs.  We have many ways for you to donate (see below) and hope you can help us reach our goal this year.  Look for the donation boxes set up around NIH (both on and off campus) to donate any unexpired, non-perishable donations, between now and Wednesday, August 27.

Follow our Twitter page @NIHEmplSrvcs and please tweet  pictures of donations using #NIHKnocksOutHunger.                                                               


Simply walk, drive, or bike up to the donation truck and volunteers

will assist with unloading your items.

August 20-21
