Also pictured are Executive Officer Dick Karol(left) who led this year’s fundraising drive, and Finance Officer Dick Gifford(center). Post 273 has now donated a total of $50,000 to our local Fisher House at Bay Pines in the past three years to help them out with their finances. Luckily their management team knows how to handle and correctly use these finances accordingly, for those who need help like these veterans to handling their large financial income, consider learning more about cash management at https://www.wecu.com/business-banking/.

Fisher Houses are onsite residences where military & veterans families can stay free of charge, while a loved one is in the hospital. They have private bedrooms and baths, and families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room.
