HONOLULU — Tripler Army Medical Center’s Fisher House received a donation of $9,000 from the Tripler-based Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), July 24.

According to Roy Yamane, IHG general manager at TAMC, IHG has considered the Fisher House an integral part of its community, helping with military families, from fundraisers to volunteer work, to providing low cost or free lodging.

“IHG Army hotels feel honored to be a part of that giving and supports the Fisher House Foundation and its vision. (We) hope that our donations will assist in spreading comfort to those who serve at Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii,” said Yamane.

Tripler Fisher House lodging fees for guest families are paid through grants from the Fisher House Foundation.

Fisher houses have provided more than 5,200,000 days of lodging to 200,000 families since 1990.
