At Fischer & Frichtel, we are truly committed to improving the quality of life throughout the metropolitan area, so we devote considerable time, effort, and funding to worthy civic and charitable endeavors. Over the years, we have donated our time and organized fundraising efforts for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys Hope, Youth In Need, St. Joseph’s Institute for the Deaf, the Ronald McDonald House, the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter, and Folds of Honor St. Louis. In 2016, we began to support the efforts of the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter. The March of Dimes is a remarkable organization that funds scientific research to prevent premature birth, birth defects and infant loss. Each year since then, Fischer & Frichtel has been a contributing sponsor of the March for Babies, which is the nation’s oldest fundraising walk.
For the second year in a row, Fischer & Frichtel Homes has pledged to donate $1,000 for every home it sells from Memorial Day through the 4th of July to the Folds of Honor-St. Louis Chapter. Last year, we donated $20,000 to the non-profit organization. These contributions help support the Folds of Honor’s mission to provide educational scholarships and support for the spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Fischer & Frichtel is a 5-star partner of St. Louis Chapter, which is the highest level of sponsorship. “We will forever be grateful to our service members who have sacrificed so much for our freedom,” said John Fischer, president of Fischer & Frichtel. “We proudly stand behind Folds of Honor to educate the legacy of these brave men and women. We thank our customers for their business which enables us to support this worthy cause.”
Fischer & Frichtel is continuing its support of the March of Dimes as a Gold Sponsor of the 2022 March for Babies, which will take place on Saturday, June 04. Again this year, the March for Babies is referring to the event as “A Mother of a Movement™” to stress how the March of Dimes is making a visible difference in our community, now and for generations to come.
