Hanscom FCU volunteers serve meals to military families
HANSCOM AFB, MA (May 14, 2019) — Earlier this month 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.
“This is a long-standing volunteer commitment for the credit union,” said Paul Marotta, Hanscom FCU’s Chairman Emeritus. “We enjoy being here at Fisher House to help military family members who are going through trying times. It’s just a small way we can provide assistance… not just to the families, but to the dedicated staff here on campus.”
Hanscom FCU has supported Fisher House Boston since the facility opened in 2010. Mr. Marotta, along with employees 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 78 “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.
