This Holiday Season, Walmart is giving $2 million in support to Operation Homefront and Fisher House to help spread holiday joy to our nation’s heroes and their families. You can join in the Salute! Help Sponsor A Family in a Fisher House today!
For most Americans, the holidays are a time to gather with loved ones and share the joy of the season, but for military families with a deployed spouse or parent or a wounded, injured or ill family member, the holidays can be an especially challenging time.
Walmart believes strongly in supporting those who have given the most to our country. Walmart has made the largest-ever single donation to the Fisher House “Sponsor a Family” program of $500,000, supporting Fisher House Foundation’s pledge that no family pays to stay in a Fisher House. This grant will provide 50,000 nights of free lodging for families so they can be close to a loved one who is hospitalized.
In addition, Walmart will fund Operation Homefront’s plan to provide toys and meals to military families nationwide who are in need of support this holiday season. The gift also will support Operation Homefront’s “Home for the Holidays” program, reuniting heroes with their families.
But there is still more to do…Walmart's gift will pay half the cost to make Fisher Houses completely free for all families in 2014.
You can join in the Salute! Help sponsor a family in a Fisher House and give the best gift this season - a family's love!
Give today to support military families in their greatest time of need, and help us meet our goal of funding an entire year of free lodging at Fisher Houses all over the world.
