Over four days in January 2021, more than 300 Children’s National Hospital volunteers vaccinated 3,400 District of Columbia Public and Charter School teachers and staff for COVID-19. In February, they administered the required second dose. These vaccination clinics were a true team effort and are essential to providing our community’s children safe, in-person education.
This endeavor was funded by Children’s Health Board and The Board of Visitors (now the Founders Auxiliary Board) with $150,000 in critical funding. These funds enabled the Hospital to successfully plan and safely execute one of the largest mass COVID-19 vaccination efforts in Washington, D.C.

I’ve been on several philanthropic boards but nothing like this one. This is an amazing group of bright and energized women who can roll up their sleeves, get to work and accomplish anything we set out to do. I have so much respect and admiration for our dedicated Board who, simply put, make things happen.
