– Furniture and mattress retailer Steinhafels has donated
$55,000 to Fisher House Wisconsin, according to a news release
from the nonprofit organization.
The donation came as a result of Steinhafels’ annual Veterans
Day sale, in which they advertised that 5 percent of sales would
be donated to Fisher House Wisconsin. Over the past two years, the
Waukesha-based Steinhafels has donated more than $85,000
to Fisher House Wisconsin.
Last week, Fisher House Wisconsin and Veterans Affairs announced
it will hold a groundbreaking of a new 13,000-square-foot facility
on the grounds of the Milwaukee VA Medical Center. It is expected
to open in 2015.
“It (was) on the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, a strong proponent
of our nation’s veterans and their sacrifice, that we gather to
receive and recognize this
special gift from Steinhafels Furniture, for Fisher House
Wisconsin,” said Dan Buttery, president of the board of
directors for Fisher House Wisconsin. “All of us at Fisher House
appreciate the incredible support we’ve received from such a
notable member of our community.” For
