From the beginning, STR has been very active in supporting the community in several ways. STR gives a portion of its profits each year to charitable organizations. Over the past six years, STR has donated $150,000 to the Fisher House Foundation, supporting families of wounded service members. This is an average of over 8 percent of annual net income. In addition, employees have individually bought gifts each year when STR has been the sponsor for the Toys-for-Tots campaign; and many employees contribute their time outside of STR to various local charities, including hypothermia shelters this past winter.
STR and STR employees support of the community is an extension of the “family first” culture of the company. We will continue to provide our customers with excellent products and services while caring for families within our community as well as our own.
Fisher House Foundation. STR is a proud corporate partner with the Fisher House Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing a home away from home for family members of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates “comfort homes,” built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. STR provides sponsorship support to the Foundation’s annual golf tournament, Fisher House Golf Classic, which is the leading fundraiser for the organization.
