Community Outreach

Help the Community Outreach committee give back to our local community by participating in our Family Dinner at The Children’s Inn at NIH. We will prepare and serve dinner for approximately 50 children receiving treatment at NIH and their families currently staying at The Inn from around the globe. This is a rewarding opportunity for SMPS members to interact with the children and families staying at The Children’s Inn and to see just how much something as small as a home-cooked meal means to families in need while meeting fellow SMPS members. Thank you to our sponsors, Clark Construction Group, LLC, and GORDON!

What You'll Learn

The Children’s Inn is a caring place to be – a place to connect with other families that are undergoing serious treatment. These dinners allow families to relax while alleviating the worries of transportation, grocery shopping, and the hassle of preparing a meal after a long day of traveling or treatments.
