Web Admin - Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Did you know that Backyard Realty Group, LLC/Tolley Community Management is a Veteran Owned Business? We also have several Veteran's that work on our team as well! In honor of Veteran's Day on November 11, 2015 we are collecting supplies for The Charlie Norwood VAMC Fisher House.

About The Fisher House Foundation:

Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.

These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $282 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
