Nearly everyone has heard of Make-A-Wish, but did you know there are wishes granted locally in St. Lawrence County each year?
Make-A-Wish Central New York serves 15 counties all the way from Binghamton to Massena with more than 200 children currently waiting to have their wishes granted, including at least five from St. Lawrence County. The cost of an average wish is roughly $12,000, and with the chapter unable to host many of their traditional fundraisers over the past year-plus, they are turning to a group of volunteers known as Wish Heroes to help fill in the void.
I've decided to become a Wish Hero, because as a long-time Make-A-Wish volunteer, I've seen first-hand, on many occasions, the power of a wish.
If you can find it in your heart to make a contribution to this fundraising effort, please do.
If you represent a business or an organization which would like to donate, please reach out me and I would be happy to set up a donation photo for social media, as well as local media (although I can make no guarantees about what the media will publish). Individuals and families are also welcome to donate, and no donation is too small!
Thank you for your support of my efforts and this amazing organization!
