New Holland presented the Fisher House Foundation with a check for $57,800 this week during a groundbreaking ceremony for the newest Fisher House, which will open on the grounds of the Milwaukee VA Medical Center.
The check represented the donation from New Holland’s 2013 True Blue Salute program.
New Holland recently kicked off its 2014 campaign that will continue through July 5.
Since January 2012, New Holland has raised more than $1.2 million for the Fisher House Foundation through True Blue Salute programs.
There are currently 64 Fisher Houses located on 23 military installations and 24 VA medical centers, with many others under construction or design.
The Milwaukee VA’s Fisher House, the first in Wisconsin, will be located just northwest of Lake Wheeler and will be within walking distance of the medical center. The 13,000-square-foot facility is expected to open in the summer of 2015 and will offer 16 suites, all professionally furnished and decorated.
