Make-A-Wish Campaign Kick-Off

The non-profit Make-A-Wish counts on donations during the Holiday Season. Its yearly “Adopt-A-Wish Campaign” helps grant wishes for kids in the North Country with a critical illness. The annual holiday fundraiser raises money to pay for wishes, like those granted 10-year-old Brandon from Plattsburgh, whose wish was for a new playset in his backyard. 11-year-old Del from Saranac had her wish granted to visit to the headquarters of EA Games in California, the company that produces Del’s favorite simulation video game, “The Sims”. The Adopt-A-Wish booth will be set up at Champlain Centre Mall in Plattsburgh through December 31st selling paper star ornaments to raise money for kids’ wishes. To donate, volunteer, or nominate a child for a wish, you can go to the Make-A-Wish Northeast New York website, or their seasonal Adopt-A-Wish website.
