The work of our partner, Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York has touched the lives of thousands of children through granted wishes. Last year alone, the chapter averaged one wish granted every 10 hours. Volunteers and supporters work tirelessly with the understanding that a wish experience can be a game-changer. Children with critical illnesses can have their spirits lifted when they have a wish granted. Whether that child is from Rochester, Buffalo, New York City, or any city in the area, Make-A-Wish can help to grant a wish.

If you haven’t experienced the power of a wish, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved this year. Whether you choose to volunteer, donate your car or attend a fundraising event, the experience of being involved in making a wish come true will change your life. Your first opportunity to get involved with Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York is May 10. Mark your calendars and get ready for a life-changing experience.
