Dave Casteel presents Barbara DeCoito-Weaver, Vancouver Fisher House manager, with a $300.00 VISA gift card on behalf of the MOAA Columbia River Chapter and Columbia River MOAA Foundation (CRMF). These gift cards enable Fisher House staff to purchase emergency items (like food and after-hours transport to/from the VA hospital) needed to support guests. The Chapter and CRMF previously donated $1,000.00 in gift cards earlier this year. Since the Vancouver Fisher House opened in March 2016, the MOAA Columbia River Chapter and Columbia River MOAA Foundation (CRMF) has donated over $5,100.00 to the local Fisher House.

Our chapter purchased and delivered patio umbrellas, bases and grill covers in time for Memorial Day 2017.
