GOLDEN, Colo., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Market®, the rotisserie cooking and contemporary home style meal experts, is supporting Fisher House Foundation this Fourth of July to serve the families of our nation's heroes. For every Oven-Crisp Chicken Strips Individual Meal purchased on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, Boston Market will prepare, donate and deliver a home style meal to a Fisher House family throughout the month (up to 1,000 total meals).
Fisher House Foundation is best known for its network of comfort homes – Fisher Houses – where military and veterans' families can stay at no cost while their loved ones are receiving treatment at a military or veterans' hospital. The Foundation ensures the families never pay a lodging fee, and since its inception, the program has saved these deserving families more than $360 million in lodging and transportation costs throughout all stages of hospitalization and recovery from illness, disease or injury.
"For all of us at Boston Market, there is simply no greater honor than being able to serve the families of the courageous men and women who so bravely serve our country," stated Boston Market CEO, George Michel, also known as "The Big Chicken." "We're honored to support an incredible organization like Fisher House Foundation to help our nation's heroes and their loved ones when they need it most."
"Fisher Houses are built thanks to support from the community. It's what we do together that makes the greatest impact," said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation. "The July Fourth promotion at Boston Market is just one more way Americans can say thank you to our military, veterans and their families."
Boston Market restaurants currently operate on 16 U.S. military bases throughout the country; there are currently 72 Fisher Houses located in 28 states and Europe. The "Stars & Strips" promotion will take place on Tuesday, July 4, at participating Boston Market locations nationwide.
