Dayton REALTORS® once again put their culinary expertise to good use on May 22, preparing a dinner for veteran families staying at the Fisher House at the VA Hospital in Dayton. It’s just one of the ways REALTORS® give back to the community.
Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. They have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $400+ million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
As members of the community, REALTORS® take part in a number of community initiatives throughout the year, from volunteering with Rebuilding Together to rehab homes, to donating money and materials to Dayton area schools and credit counseling services. The Dayton REALTORS® Foundation provides scholarships to dependents of REALTORS®, and their annual holiday reception serves as Dayton’s largest source of donated toys to the Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots.
