WISH GRANTING PROGRAM
This is our main program. We grant wishes to children with life-threatening illness or a severe life-altering injury. Wishes can vary from trips, computers special exercise equipment, etc. The wishes are as unique as the children we serve.
This program is designed to aid the families having received a wish to support them at Christmas time.
We find a local business/individual sponsor to adopt the family and purchase Christmas presents for all the family members, along with food or any other needed items. If your are interested in adopting a family or helping support our Christmas program, please give us a call!
We collect any size, shape and type of blanket, or NEW teddy bear to give our wish children and their siblings during hospital stays, on wish visits, for birthdays and at Christmas. If we have an over-abundance of items we donate them to local hospital, police and emergency crews to benefit the children they serve.
SPONSOR A WISH PROGRAM
Would you like to help with a specific wish, in full or in part? Call us and we can let you know what wishes we are currently working on. Businesses or individuals may sponsor all or part of any wish.
"WALKWAY FOR WISHES"
Provide a path to a child's dream, by purchasing a brick to place in front of our office for $35.
Acknowledge anyone you hold dear with their name or put a special acknowledgment on a brick. You may want one brick for all "Smith Grandchildren" or "Smith Family". Still taking orders, just give the office a call for more information.
I know the last thing anyone wants to think about now is winter and Christmas.
However, we want to let you know we are working on a special Christmas fundraiser with Roots Nursery, to add to our pictures with santa.
We will let you know as things develop and time gets closer.
Just be watching for the details.
