How do office products and supporting our US military families in need go together? Zuma Office Supply is proud to include the Fisher House Foundation as one of our supported charities. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, the Fisher House Foundation donates “comfort homes” built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers.
These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times – during hospitalization for an injury, unexpected illness or disease. There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need, and to ensure they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment.
Like the Ronald McDonald House charities which supply housing and comfort for families with children who have medial conditions that require hospitalization, the Fisher House is a home away from home for families with loved ones in the military who require in-patient, and many times critical medical care.
Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 10,000 families, and have made available nearly 3 million days of lodging to family members since the program was originated in 1990. No family pays to stay at a Fisher House! It is an incredible organization that provides our military families the facilities they deserve to take care of their loved ones.
The Fisher House Foundation is a 4-Star rated charity by CharityNavigator.org. An amazing 94.7% of donations are used for the cause, not for administrative expenses or fund raising. Those incredible results are a big reason Zuma Office Supply does our best to support their cause. To learn more about The Fisher House Foundation visit their website at www.fisherhouse.org.
