The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for new member Make-A-Wish Delaware. Attendees included volunteers and Dover Mayor Robin Christiansen.
Make-A-Wish Delaware is a nonprofit that grants the wishes of children with critical illnesses while striving to touch the lives of all eligible children and their families in the state of Delaware. A wish is not just a nice thing, but is transformational to all who are involved. Studies have proven that a wish can give the child the hope and strength needed to continue through their treatments. The organization allows children, during one of the most difficult times of their lives, to wish for anything in the world, even if they think it is impossible, and make it possible. Make-A-Wish gives that child and family hope that the impossible can happen and the strength to fight through until it does.
“Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware and Susquehanna Valley is thrilled to have the entire state of Delaware in its chapter family and to grant wishes to children residing throughout the state,” said Michelle Wall, community relations manager. “The chapter is on track to grant 65 wishes to children in Delaware this year.”
