“Spring Fling for the Fisher Houses”

Soldiers Angels are currently having a Spring Fling for the Fisher Houses. A Fisher House serves as a “home away from home” for the families of military personnel and veterans seeking medical care at major military and VA medical centers. They are designed to accommodate 16 to 42 family members at any time and feature common kitchens, large communal dining rooms and living areas stocked with books and toys for the children. Families can stay free of charge.

The average stay in hospital for a combat- wounded serviceman or woman is 45-60 days, and in many cases can go well into a year or more. Providing the means for families to be with their loved ones is critical in their recovery process. All of the houses are built by the Fisher House Foundation, and Soldiers Angels works with the House staff to meet their ongoing needs. As the number of combat casualties continues to climb, these facilities will be called upon to serve more and more families.

If you donate a gift card for $20.00 or more to any Fisher House by May 1st, you will receive a $20.00 gift certificate for the Soldiers Angels Store.

Cards should be to common stores: Sears, JC Penney, Wal-Mart etc., or prepaid Visa or Mastercards. The cards should be sent directly to the Fisher House of your choice- be sure to note that you are with Soldiers Angels.

Here is a link to the Fisher Houses if you would like to choose one for your donation.

After you have made your donation, please send me your name and address, and a copy of the receipt for the gift card purchased and what Fisher House it was sent to. Please include your email so that I can send you your gift certificate for the Soldiers Angels Store.
