Fisher House – Community involvement runs deep at Plymouth Rock…

Plymouth Rock Assurance visited Fisher House Boston on October 17th for a day of volunteering. Plymouth Rock employees and Plymouth Rock independent agents spent the day cooking, cleaning and beautifying the house and grounds for families of veterans who rely on the home while their loved ones receive treatment.

“A home away from home” for families of veterans receiving VA medical care. Fisher House Boston is a comfort home where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost. The home was built in 2010 for the VA Boston Healthcare System, which is the largest VA facility in New England and the fifth largest VA in the country. This facility proudly cares for more than 62,000 veterans in nine locations throughout Eastern Massachusetts. There are 62 Fisher Houses located across the United States and in Germany, located near the military and VA medical centers they serve.

Fisher Houses have up to 20 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 $200 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation.

Financial support from Plymouth Rock will help to meet the basic household needs of Fisher House guests, allowing them to focus on providing a healing and supportive environment for their loved ones.

“Fisher House Boston is very grateful to all of the employees of Plymouth Rock Assurance for their generous donation,” said Michelle J. Keating, President of Fisher House Boston. “It takes a community to keep Fisher House Boston a “home” to our military families while their loved ones are being cared for at the VA Healthcare System.”

Plymouth Rock is proud to support the men and women who serve our country and their families, especially when they find themselves in a time of need. We believe very strongly in being an active member of the community where we live and work, which is why we take advantage of opportunities to support our neighbors.

A big thank you to the folks at Fisher House for having us and for all they do to help our veterans and their families!
