One of Our Favorites – Fisher House Foundation – Catches the Eye of Fox News

I was looking at the Fox News website the other day and this story jumped out at me.

The headline read: “Organization lends helping hand to Gold Star families in their time of need.”

Turns out the article was about Fisher House Foundation.

For some time now, 4Patriots has been making monthly donations to Fisher House Foundation. And you make these contributions possible with the purchases of our survival food and gear.

335,000 Families and Counting

Since 1990, Fisher House Foundation has been assisting military families across the United States whose loved ones have been injured while serving their country.

So far, they’ve helped something like 335,000 such families over close to 30 years by donating houses around the country. As well as in Germany and the United Kingdom.

The Fisher house at Dover Air Force Base near Dover, Delaware was built specifically for families whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Like Craig and Toni Gross. They traveled there from their home in Tampa, Florida to accept the body of their only son, Army Corporal Frank Gross. Frank was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2011.

Dover House Is ‘Most Important’

Ken Fisher, chairman and CEO of Fisher House, said the Dover house is “the most important Fisher House” his organization has ever built.

“We believe in the power of family,” he said. “We believe in, obviously, bringing the plight of the military family to light.”

The Dover house has multiple bedrooms, a fully-stocked kitchen and a living room full of toys. All to help make the family’s most difficult day somewhat more bearable.

“This house is their safe haven while they are here at Dover for their short stay,” said Technical Sergeant Dorothy Whitfield. “If they are sad and they want to cry, we’re right there with them. And we’ll cry with them.”

Houses, Hotels and Miles

Families of active duty soldiers and veterans alike can stay at other Fisher houses, as well, while their loved one is receiving medical treatment.

It’s estimated the program has saved military and veterans families over $407 million for lodging and transportation.

Fisher House Foundation also operates the Hero Miles program. They use donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members.

Another program operated by Fisher House Foundation is Hotels for Heroes. Donated hotel points allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers when there is not a nearby house available.

4Patriots Proud to Be Part of It

The foundation also manages a grant program. It supports other military charities and scholarships funds for military children, spouses, and children of fallen and disabled veterans.

At 4Patriots, we feel very fortunate to be in a position where we can help the families of U.S. military members. They and their families deserve everything these organizations and other fine charities provide for them.

It’s really people such as you who we have to thank for the ability to give back. We couldn’t do it without you.

Fisher House Helps 4Patriots Customer

One of our customers recently contacted us to share her story. Her husband had been quite ill and was admitted to a VA hospital. But he didn’t want to go in because his wife would have nowhere nearby to stay.

The hospital staff put her in touch with Fisher House. They were able to house her until her husband’s release following life-saving surgery.

She told us she orders preparedness supplies from 4Patriots because we donate to a program that directly affected her life.

Now, obviously we don’t donate to organizations such as Fisher House so that people like her will purchase our gear. But we do choose to support organizations that we feel strongly about and that we feel are important to our customers too.

It’s a great feeling to hear such personal feedback regarding our charity of choice. And to be able to share a first-hand account of how their help is so important to military families in need.

More Military Family Assistance

4Patriots also donates to these military-related beneficiaries:

  • Operation Homefront. They aid military families during difficult financial times by providing food, auto and home repair, and vision care. Plus travel and transportation, moving help, essential home items and financial help.
  • A Soldier’s Child Foundation. They provide meaningful birthday gifts to the children of fallen U.S. military members. And also have mentorship programs and college scholarships.

But again, these donations only happen because of you. When you choose 4Patriots for your survival supply needs, you are also giving funds to worthy causes.

It’s as simple as that. Thank you, friends, for everything you do for Fisher House Foundation and other important charities.
