Fisher House

Fisher House Foundation, Inc. was founded by Elizabeth and Zachery Fisher in 1990 with a personal donation of more than $20 million to begin the construction of "comfort homes" for families of hospitalized military personnel. "A Fisher House is 'a home away from home' for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time-during the hospitalization for unexpected illnesses, diseases or injuries. The Fisher House program ensures families that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive and caring environment. There is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House."

The Foundation also administers and sponsors Scholarships for Military Children, the Hero Miles program (donating frequent flyer miles to assist service members and their families), Team Fisher House, and co-sponsors the Newman's Own Award. If you would like more information on these various programs go to www.fisherhouse.org.

As you are already aware, we are using monthly communion donations to pay for First Mile Missions. The Second Mile Missions has already made two $300.00 donations to Andrews AFB Fisher House in Maryland and will donate another amount in the near future. You may recall reading the very appreciative thank you letter in the bulletin from Ms. Grampp, Manager of Andrew AFB Fisher House, thanking our church for those donations. If you are interested in privately donating to any of the Fisher House Foundation programs just refer to the web site in the above paragraph or mail your donation to: Fisher House Foundation, Inc., 1401 Rockville Pike, Suite 600, Rockville, MD 20852. You may also contact Donna J. with any other questions.
