The Tennessee Fisher House located on the campus of the Alvin C York VA Hospital in Murfreesboro is in need of supplies for their guest, which are the family members of Active Duty Military and Veterans. This is a "home away from home" while a loved one is going through procedures at the VA. It is not a motel room type facility but rather a warm friendly environment for the family - and nothing heals like having family around with no worry or stress about lodging, food, etc. during the stay. Such facilities are at no charge to the family that qualifies.
We have a list of the needed supplies on our website, WGNSRadio.com, keyword Fisher House.
