Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 31, 2017
In April, Olympic Hot Tub kicks off its first annual “American Heroes” event to support charities serving people tied to either the military, police, fire or teachers. This year’s beneficiary is Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s Fisher House.
“Courage, bravery, and sacrifice are the qualities of the heroes we admire,” said Olympic Hot Tub owner Don Riling. “When we decided to begin this program, Fisher House came top of mind in no small part for the amazing support and care they provide to military families.”
Fisher House provides a nurturing and secure living environment for military service members and their families to stay while receiving medical care at Madigan Army Medical Center. It’s a comfortable “home away from home” designed to keep families together while receiving much needed medical attention.
“They offered food, supplies and even my escort was amazed [by] the amenities and most importantly the convenience of being in such a close proximity to Madigan hospital,” says one testimonial on the organization’s website. “Fisher House is doing a tremendous job by assisting us, the families of military personnel while they find themselves in pain, [and for] us, the parents trying to find a way to stay close to them.”
To support Fisher House, a portion of every hot tub & sauna purchase between April 1st and April 30th will be donated to the organization. Hot Spring Spas has partnered with Olympic Hot Tub to donate $300 for every Hot Spring Spa sold. Olympic Hot Tub will also donate $100 for every Freeflow Spa, Finnleo Sauna & Covana Automated Gazebo sold.
Olympic Hot Tub’s goal is to give a total of $15,000 to help support Fisher House.
Olympic Hot Tub also encourages community members to donate directly to Fisher House this month. Interested parties may visit http://fisherhouse-jblm.org for more information on what and how to donate. “Even simple household items such as laundry soap, fabric softener, or snack items can be a big help,” said Riling.
