Charity of the Month: Fisher House Foundation

Fisher HouseHow often do we hear about events and activities put on by an organization but don’t really know much more about them and how they contribute to our military family?  This month, we are highlighting the Fisher House Foundation.  Fisher House is known for helping military families through various avenues such as Hero Miles, Hotels for Heroes and remembrance runs.  What that actually means runs so much deeper.

Fisher House has locations throughout United States and Germany that are set up for the purpose of providing a comfortable home-like atmosphere for our service members undergoing medical treatment.  These houses have private quarters for the patient and family, along with shared space for families to interact.  Aside from the value in the service member receiving the care they need with their family by their side, family members find comfort and support during this time.

When space is not available at a local Fisher House, the Fisher House Foundation may extend their Hotels for Heroes program wherein the qualifying patient and family receive lodging at a local hotel at a reduced rate.  This program is made available through donations of reward points.  In addition to providing a rehabilitative environment through Fisher House, the Fisher House Foundation receives donated air miles to assist in relieving the financial burden of air transportation costs to get family members to their service members who are currently injured or ill.

There are many ways you can help the Fisher House Foundation including donation of miles and reward points as listed above.  Additionally, Fisher House gladly accepts donations of food, cleaning supplies and household goods to keep your local Fisher House ready for guests.  Please contact the Fisher House today to see how you can help support this cherished organization for our military families in need.  Additional information about the Fisher House can be found at: http://www.fisherhouse.org/
