Remke Industries, Wheeling, Ill., a manufacturer of a variety of products such as cord connectors, cordsets and conduit hubs for commercial and industrial applications, introduced a new program in August called “Remke Gives Back: Even Our Heroes Need a Helping Hand.” In this program, Remke will contribute 5 percent of all eligible product sales from August 2008 through February 2009 to the Fisher House Foundation. Fisher House donates “comfort homes” which are built on the grounds of major military and Veterans Administration medical centers so our active duty military, retirees or veterans and their families can face medical crises together.

“Remke is proud to support our brave service men and women and their families whose service to our country keeps America free,” says Tom O'Gara, Remke president. “Our goal is to donate $100,000 to Fisher House through this program.”
