Preparing for 2016 Needs

FOFH-IL contributes $32,000 Program Support

Towards Sustaining Hines VA Fisher House

 Volunteer Non-Profit Pledges Replacement

 of Dining Room Chairs and All Bedroom Desk Chairs

 Plus Continuation of Annual Project Support

At each year’s end, FOFH-IL President Betty Stamatis reviews Fisher House needs with Fisher House Manager Holly Wright. In keeping with custom established since the inception of the non-profit’s relationship with Hines VA Fisher House, the group presents funds and pledges to fulfill top priority projects to maintain the highest standards of hospitality for military families hosted during medical crises. The presentation is made at the Annual Holiday Celebration hosted by FOFH-IL.

For 2016, FOFH-IL presented $8,000 in Target gift cards, $6,000 in Costco gift cards and $2,000 in Home Depot gift cards. In addition, the non-profit has pledged funding of $16,000 for replacement of all dining room and bedroom desk chairs which are showing wear and tear.

Also, FOFH-IL will continue to fund landscaping services, holiday decorations and food sponsoring for the annual open house.

Throughout 2016, FOFH-IL will respond to all Fisher House requests for funding or payment of special needs which, in the past, range from emergency flights home for family members, funeral costs for a cash-strapped family, baseball and other outings to relieve stressed family members, special maintenance projects ensuring the very best “home away from home.”

Military Families Express Thanks

When asked ‘where do you want to go on vacation?’

I thought…and thought and answered:

Hines Fisher House!

Not for the fun and games
which were great but for the camaraderie – mutual trust
and friendship among people
who spend a lot of time

Thank You…
You have left a footprint on my heart
