AISI and its staff have for years contributed to the Salvation Army and So Others Might Eat, a D.C.-based food bank. This year staff also contributed donations of steel canned foods to Central Union Mission, a shelter near AISI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. Last week, AISI also welcomed Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and researchers from Columbia University Medical Center for a fundraiser for TK2 deficiency, a rare and often undiagnosed disease that claims the lives of very young children all over the world. The event helped raise over $60K that will directly benefit six children in a research protocol, including Art Estopinan, Jr., son to the Congresswoman’s chief of staff.
