From a press release:

The D.C. Firefighters Burn Foundation (The Foundation) announces the launch of its first-ever fundraising campaign and aims to raise $50,000 from September 15ththrough November 15th with 100 percent of funds raised going to much-needed pediatric equipment for the new burn unit at Children’s National Medical Center.

For the past 11 years, the Foundation has provided financial, emotional, and survivor support programs for youth and adult burn survivors along with injured firefighters throughout the Washington D.C. metro-area by purchasing and upgrading equipment at Washington Med-Star Hospital Center and Children’s National Medical Center, sponsoring burn survivors to the Adaptive Sports Camp and the World Burn Congress and providing educational materials for firefighters, health professionals, and the D.C. community.

“With Children’s National the only true pediatric facility in the D.C. metro area, it’s essential that we support this new specialized pediatric center and to ensure that young burn survivors from our region receive a level of care that is second to none,” said Jason Woods, D.C. Firefighters Burn Foundation president. “This new pediatric burn facility will serve pediatric burn patients from Northern Virginia, Montgomery and Prince George’s County, Southern Maryland and of course, D.C. We plan to continue helping young burn survivors throughout the area for decades to come and to ensure that they can now receive the level of care that they deserve close to home.”

Donations are accepted via the Foundation’s website at www.dcffburnfoundation.org. The fundraising campaign culminates in a fundraising party on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the Dubliner on 520 N. Capitol Street, N.W.
