Right at Home office staff cooked dinner for the guests at the Fisher House.
A client of ours passed away recently, and in the obituary his family asked that instead of sending flowers or donations of any kind, that people choose one of a few organizations to volunteer for instead. The Pittsburgh Fisher House was one of the ones they had listed. The Fisher house provides free shelter and food for the families of the veterans who are being treated at the VA Hospitals. They welcome anyone to go on their website and sign up to provide a dinner for the guests staying at the house!
So, that's what we did! On February 27, 2020, the office staff of Right at Home West Pittsburgh cooked rigatoni with meat sauce and served a tossed salad and bread on the side with homemade cupcakes for dessert. We had the pleasure of meeting people from all over, including Virginia, Kentucky, and New York. By the end of our time spent with them, they had felt like family. Each one of them hugged and thanked us on our way out. It felt great helping support the loved ones of the veterans at the hospital, and we are looking forward to providing another meal at the Fisher House very soon.
