CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group Donates to Fisher House
Feb. 5, 2016—The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group has announced that for the fifth year in a row, the 17 individual Chicago area CARSTAR locations have joined together to raise money and goods for the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital Fisher House located in Hines, Ill.
This year, CARSTAR partnered with local country music station, U.S. 99, to promote the drive. Donations bins were placed in all participating shops along with a Fisher House Wish List. Cash donations exceeding $2,000 were raised, along with 12 bins of food and supplies.
CARSTAR West-Hill refurbished a fully operational 1930s General Electric refrigerator, which was raffled off to raise $1,400 for the Fischer House.
“The Hines Fisher House does so much every day for our veterans and their families,” said Louie Santiago, marketing specialist for the CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group. “It’s an honor for us to be able to help out every chance we get.”
