Hanscom FCU Volunteers Serve Meals to Military Veterans and Their Families

Hanscom AFB, MA (August 9, 2019) – This week, volunteers from Hanscom Federal Credit Union prepared a meal for guests at Fisher House Boston, which provides no-charge accommodation for family members caring for hospitalized U.S. veterans. Fisher House Boston is located at the VA Boston Healthcare System, West Roxbury Campus.

 “Fisher House Boston does incredibly valuable work, and the credit union is proud to have been able to support their efforts for nearly a decade,” said Ray Phillips, Hanscom FCU’s Chairman of the Board. “We appreciate the opportunity Fisher House provides us to give back in a small way to military veterans and their families when they’re in need.”

Hanscom FCU has supported Fisher House Boston since the facility opened in 2010. Employees, members of the board, and volunteers from Hanscom FCU come to Fisher House four times a year to prepare meals for the guest families.

Since 1991, the Fisher House Foundation has donated over 80 “comfort homes,” built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers in the U.S. and overseas. The foundation has served over 368,000 families since its inception, saving them more than $451 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation as their loved ones receive care.
