AHG NC1715 Visit Fisher House

Posted by Carmen Ledford on Sunday Oct 13, 2013 Under American Heritage Girls, Claire

AHG at Fisher HouseAmerican Heritage Girls Troop NC1715 had a tour of the Fisher House. We learned a little about Zachary Fisher who founded the Fisher Foundation. He never served in the armed forces but always was very patriotic and had a heart to serve those who serve us. He saw a need to provide housing for military families when loved ones are receiving medical treatment. The 62 houses in the United States and Germany have served over 180,000 families and saved those families millions in hotel cost. We also learned about different ways people help at the house. We will be collecting items for the house at a Flag Retirement Ceremony in November and Wreaths Across Ceremony in December.
