DELTA Resources, Inc. Eclipses $15,000 in 2008 Fundraising for Fisher House Foundation
As the DELTActs Charity of the Year, Fisher House Foundation continues to receive substantial donations from DELTA Resources, Inc. in order to support wounded veterans and their families
Washington, DC – DELTA Resources, Inc. (DELTA) has donated over $15,000 to the Fisher House Foundation, the 2008 DELTActs Charity of the Year.
In order to make this contribution to the Fisher House Foundation possible, DELTA sponsored three fundraisers in the past year. These fundraisers included the Fisher House Annual Golf Classic at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA, Chartwell Golf & Country Club Golf Tournament in Severna Park, MD, and Car Show for the Troops at Old Dominion Speedway in Manassas, VA, which was founded by DELTA’s own, Pat Templeton. Additional monetary donations were also made to bring DELTA’s total contribution to over $15,000.
“DELTA takes seriously its responsibility as a corporate citizen and gives back to the community in many different ways. Each year DELTA selects one charity to support through DELTActs charitable giving and volunteer programs,” said Maria Proestou, president and CEO of DELTA, “In 2007 and 2008, Fisher House was our employee’s charity of choice. This choice is the natural result of DELTA’s military business focus and our desire to aid, serve, and honor U.S. military personnel and their families.”
The Fisher House Foundation is a private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. This organization donates “comfort homes” to ensure families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Since the origination of the program in 1990, the Fisher House Foundation has served 10,000 families and made lodging available for nearly 2.5 million days.
For the third consecutive year, DELTA will continue to support the Fisher House Foundation as the 2009 DELTActs Charity of the Year.
