The Fisher House Foundation provides a peaceful, safe and comfortable place of refuge for the families of our wounded warriors so they can be close during the healing process. A quote on the Fisher House website sums it up best: “It’s a place where you can talk with people who are going through the same thing you are.” The Fisher House Foundation is responsible for managing the arrival and departure of the family members and providing all of the amenities; including meals, housekeeping and other essentials. The Fisher House homes only operate through the generosity of donors and volunteers. With these donations the Foundation ensures that there are no fees to the families for air travel, lodging and living essentials during their stay.

For the past four years FedEx Government Services has selected the Fisher House Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland as our Purple Totes beneficiary. This is our small collective token of gratitude to the soldiers and their families who have sacrificed their safety and security for the country we all love. Our team provided; paper towels, toilet tissue, laundry detergent and coffee K-Cups that will be utilized by the families staying at the Bethesda location. We also contributed matching funds through FedEx by volunteering at the Army Ten Miler and the Marine Corps Marathon fund raising events. Our total contribution of household items, direct checks and matching volunteer hours, brought our donation total to $980.00; reflecting once again that FedEx Government Services sincerely cares for our military families.
