Armstrong & Getty Launch Fisher House Donation Drive

Fisher House Foundation, which provides comfort homes for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers, is being featured this week for the fifth consecutive year by the acclaimed Armstrong and Getty radio show syndicated throughout California.

“We can’t thank Armstrong and Getty enough,” said Dave Coker, President of Fisher House Foundation.  “During the past four years, this dynamic duo have raised $1.7 million for the Foundation.  They aim this year to raise at least another $500,000, bringing the total to more than $2.3 million.”

Today, there are 65 Fisher Houses across the country, in Germany and the United Kingdom.  More than 250,000 families have been provided 6 million nights of lodging, saving them more than $282 million since the program began in 1990.

Additionally, Fisher House Foundation’s Hero Miles program has provided more than 58,000 airline tickets that allow families to help heal together.  $15 million in scholarships have been given to military and Veteran family members and the Foundation has sponsored national and international wounded warrior athletic competitions to celebrate the return to health of disabled military and Veterans.

“Fisher House Foundation didn’t do all this alone,” said Coker. “The fact that thousands of Americans contributed to making these dreams possible is something all of us should be proud of.  Americans do care. And what better time to show that than during Veterans Day week.”
