Fisher House’s Sponsor a Family program provides a home away from home for families with a military service member in the hospital for an illness, disease, or injury. As part of WalMart's Home for the Holidays program, they are giving the largest single donation to the Fisher House. Half a million dollars will be going to locations all across the nation. Twenty five thousand dollars of that will go to the Fisher House at Keesler Air Force Base. The funding helps provide free lodging for families so they can be close to their loved ones. Coretta Brown of Harvey, Louisiana says, “Well my father is actually a patient right now at the VA hospital. It's more convenient that we can drive here quickly, do what we need to do, and then get back to our loved ones at the hospital.” If you would like to make a donation to the Fisher House, you can visit www.fisherhouse.org/walmart.
