Assist with making the dreams of our wish children come true through creativitiy and imagination. You will visit the wish child and his/her family; always with another Wish Granting Volunteer. Your objective is to find out what the child's wish is; explain our required paperwork; and assist with making the wish come true. Make-A-Wish Volunteer experience and training is required.
Some wishes will involve travel by airplane. Often, it is a first-time experience not just for the wish child- but the entire family. As an Airport Greeter, it will be up to you to help aid in the process for their first-in-a-lifetime adventure. Anticipation, excitement, a little anxiety, and lots of energy are the hallmarks of this event. And it's even better when they return! The happy faces, the new adventures and experiences to share!
Your help around our busy office would be heartily welcomed. It always seems there is always more to do then there are hours in the day to do complete it. Whether it is filing, answering the phone, or assisting with word processing and/or mailings, there is always plenty to do and we would love to meet and work with you first hand.
Participate in planning, organizing, and executing our fundraisers and special events. Perhaps you know someone who is interested in hosting an event or making an "in-kind" donation of materials or services. Maybe you have a special talent or know someone who does, and would be willing to support us. The possibilities in this area are only limited by your imagination!
Kids for Wish Kids
Kids and young adults helping other children experience a wish of a lifetime by fundraising, supporting, or enhancing wishes. Your help is needed in educating these groups about opportunities available or recruiting groups to raise money. For details visit our Kids For Wish Kids page.
Other Special Skills
If you have other special skills to help our Foundation, we need you!
There are plenty of other ways to help!
Your ability to help us is limited by only four things - time, imagination, energy, and creativity. If you have ideas, please drop us an Email, call, or stop by one of our three offices. See our contact page for Email links and addresses.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you volunteering in the near future. ANY time or effort on your part in the office, at an event, or meeting a wish family helps us to continue to meet and exceed our goals to serve the children in our area! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
