BRG Realty Group donates to Fisher House for every lease signed before end of year CINCINNATI, OH.—BRG Apartments’ annual ‘A Home Before the Holidays’ leasing special returns for the fourth year in a row. For every BRG Apartments lease signed between Veterans Day and the end of the year, the locally-based company will donate $50 to the Fisher House, a “home away from home” for families of military patients receiving medical care. There are four Fisher Houses in the Tristate area, three in Dayton and one in Cincinnati.
“Being locally owned and operated, BRG cares about our communities and we are inspired to give back this holiday season,” said Jennifer Illanz, training and marketing manager for BRG Apartments. “This is our fourth year teaming up with The Fisher/Nightingale House, Inc., and we have raised over $25,000 for this organization since we began.”
The first Fisher House opened in 1991, built by Zachary Fisher, a well-known builder and philanthropist in the 1980s and 1990s, and founded by Pauline Trost, whose experiences as the wife of a Naval Admiral led her to want to give back to military members. “The Fisher Houses provide an opportunity for military and veteran families to stay together and support each other when a loved one is undergoing medical treatment, as well as physical and emotional support to these families and individuals,” said Christopher Stanley, executive director of The Fisher/Nightingale Houses in Dayton. BRG Apartments operates apartment communities in Greater Cincinnati, Columbus, Northern Kentucky, Dayton, Marion and New Albany, Indiana.
BRG is committed to connecting residents with homes, and that same spirit of community during the holiday season inspires their annual “A Home Before the Holidays” campaign.
