Dominion Announces $100,000 Donation To Greater Cleveland Fisher House

CLEVELAND, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- During today's Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Dominion's (NYSE: D) chairman, president and chief executive officer, Thomas F. Farrell II, announced that the company's philanthropic arm, the Dominion Foundation, is donating $100,000 to the Greater Cleveland Fisher House. Dominion owns and operates Dominion East Ohio, a natural gas utility serving 1.2 million customer accounts in Ohio.

Founded in 1990, Fisher House Foundation is a sterling organization with a five-star philanthropic reputation. It matches funds raised by a local, volunteer non-profit and builds "comfort homes" for the families of servicemen and -women who are being treated by the Stokes VA or the VA patients of the Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, MetroHealth and other regional hospitals. Treatments are surgical, medical, psychological, prosthetic or rehabilitative. There are 62 Fisher Houses on the grounds of major military and VA centers in the U.S. and three abroad.

The Greater Cleveland Fisher House is raising $3.5 million to build a 16,000 square-foot home at the Cleveland VA Medical Center, the nation's third-largest VA hospital. The home would provide free lodging for as many as 18 families or 40 people at a time.

"The Fisher House Foundation is doing right by our nation's heroes by doing right by their families," Farrell said. "No wounded or ill military veteran should have to undergo treatment and hospitalization without their families by their sides. It is a privilege to be a part of the endeavor to build a Fisher House here in Cleveland."

" Tom Farrell, his Cleveland and Ohio employees and, especially, Dominion's legion of shareholders have raised awareness along with funds. Dominion is paying a debt that is legitimately owed. The veteran men and women and their own mothers, fathers, husbands, wives and children deeply, sincerely thank each and all of you," Tom Sweeney, president of the Greater Cleveland Fisher House, said.

The organization hopes to break ground on the facility in late 2014 or early 2015.
