Defense Leader Provides Major Boost to Organization that Helps Wounded Veterans Undergoing Medical Treatment

BOSTON, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisher House Boston announced today that technology and innovation leader Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has donated $100,000 to the organization. The gift will go directly towards construction of the Fisher House Boston project, which broke ground last October on the grounds of the Veterans Administration Medical Center in West Roxbury. The Fisher House Foundation helps wounded and ill veterans recover faster by providing their families with caring and supportive homes near military and VA medical centers at no charge. Fisher House Boston will be the only such facility in New England.

"Fisher House is a special organization that provides important community assistance to our wounded veterans and their families," said William H. Swanson, Chairman and CEO, Raytheon Company. "Having supported Fisher House sites in other states across the country, we're so pleased to welcome Fisher House to Massachusetts so that we can further honor New England's servicemen and women and their families."

In addition to its generous gift, Raytheon is sponsoring a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on New England Cable News requesting support on behalf of Fisher House Boston. The PSAs, which began in early May, will run through the end of July.

"Fisher House Boston is honored to accept this gift from Raytheon Company. Contributions such as these are critical to our success," said Fisher House Boston Chairwoman Michelle J. Keating. "We are truly grateful for the efforts of Raytheon -- a global leader in defense technology and an excellent corporate citizen."

The Raytheon Company gift of $100,000 is the largest single donation received by Fisher House Boston to date.

Fisher House Boston is under construction at the VA Medical Center in West Roxbury -- a level 2 polytrauma center with the only spinal chord injury unit in New England. Fisher House Boston will feature 20 suites, a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a spacious dining room, and a living room with a library and toys for children. The capital campaign for Fisher House Boston has a goal of $3 million in private donations.
