Children displaced: Darcars delivers Amazon wish list to Children's Inn after emergency

BETHESDA, MD. (ABC7) —  September 14th 2018 -- Nearly one month after dozens of families were displaced from the Children's Inn at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), donations are pouring in from locals who saw a need to help.

The Children's Inn was forced to close and evacuate the facility in Bethesda after a crack was found in the ceiling on August 21.

All of the families who temporarily live at the Children's Inn are going through treatment at NIH or rare clinical trials.

Shortly after the incident, CEO of Children's Inn, Jennie Lucca, says the Inn set up an emergency fund and an Amazon wish list. This was an effort to keep families comfortable despite a drastic change in their plans.

Thursday - much needed help arrived in multiple vehicles filled to the brim with supplies.

Darcars, a local company, says they shortly after they heard of the incident they sprung into action to help. The company, who is located in the community, purchased the Inn's entire Amazon wish list and more as they prepared to hand deliver it to families and staff.
