Volunteers Needed! Take fresh fruit to the BAMC Fisher House for an easy way to give back!
Please purchase grab-n-go fruit such as apples, bananas, oranges, pears, etc. Fruit can be delivered at your convenience anytime during the first week of the month you sign up for. **Cost of fruit can be reimbursed up to $40!!!**
We provide the 4 BAMC Fisher Houses with fresh fruit for the families that are staying there while their loved ones are seeking care at BAMC. A BAMC Auxiliary basket in each Fisher House is provided. We are still in need of one volunteer! Please sign up if you would like to help out by dropping off some fruit!
* We are asking for one volunteer to provide roughly 60+ pieces of fruit, as there are 57 total rooms to provide for.
* Please drop off fruit to Fisher House #3 in the kitchen to Inge, Denise, Connie or Gracie. They will help us distribute the fruit to all 4 Fisher Houses.
* Volunteers can deliver fruit donations any day during the week of the date they sign up for.
A little bit of info about the Fisher Houses:
Within walking distance of the hospital is a comfortable temporary home, filled with warm, caring people who help family members endure the stresses associated with a loved one's serious medical condition. The Fisher House enables families to stay together, cook meals, do laundry, and relax in a "home away from home" atmosphere. There are no other facilities on military installations which provide this caring, compassionate environment. Families do not pay to stay at a Fisher House. Fees at Army, Navy, and Air Force Fisher Houses are underwritten by Fisher House Foundation. While we all wish there were no need for Fisher Houses, the reality of life is that thousands of active duty and retired military and veterans' families are served each year by this wonderful network of beautiful homes! Fisher Houses, a gift of love!
