Hanscom FCU volunteers provide meals for military families
HANSCOM AFB, MA (December 18, 2017) — Hanscom Federal Credit Union volunteers recently shared their culinary skills by preparing dinner for the guests at Fisher House Boston. Fisher House Boston provides lodging for military families who have loved ones receiving care at the West Roxbury Veteran Affairs Medical Center.
“It can be very difficult for these families to be away from home, especially at this time of the year,” said Hanscom FCU Chairman Paul Marotta. “Providing a home-cooked meal is our way of letting them know we are thinking of them and we care.”
Fisher House Boston is one of 73 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and 29 VA medical centers worldwide. These homes provide military families housing that is close to a loved one during hospitalization. There is no charge for family members to stay at a Fisher House. Since 1990, the program has served 305,000 families.
Volunteers Jean Marotta and Susan Phillips are joined by Hanscom FCU Chairman Paul Marotta, Hanscom FCU President/CEO David Sprague and Hanscom FCU Director Ray Phillips.
