Make A Wish!

Recently, our After School Program was contacted by Make-A-Wish Foundation to help them as they grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions. We of course said, YES!

They asked us to help decorate the boxes used for Wish Enhancement Items. For example, a child being sent to Florida may receive a box filled with sunscreen, a beach towel, flip flops and other items to make their trip easier. 

It was so fun to see the students get creative decorating these special boxes. This important job also sparked some meaningful discussions and awareness of what these kids are going through. We hope the children that receive these Wish Boxes have as much fun opening them as we did decorating them. 

Thank you Make-A-Wish Foundation for letting us be a part in this fun and rewarding activity.
