Allison Visits the Big Apple

One of the things I enjoy most is hearing from the wish kids after their wish. It is great to hear about what fun they had and how the experience impacted their family.

I started working here at Make-A-Wish® Maine in October of last year. Not too long after starting, I was asked by our fabulous Volunteer Director Eileen if I would like to volunteer as a wish granter for a new wish child.

Texas Training

Meredith goes to Texas for a training
This week I spent some time away from the office and met some folks from other chapters of Make-A-Wish at a conference about our database. I hadn’t ever been to Dallas, Texas before and it was pretty exciting!

Opening the Wish Closet

One of Meredith's favorite parts of her job is "shopping" for kids from the wish closet.
One of the best parts of my job is the time I spend in the Wish Closet. Think of it: this is a closet full of toys and books that I get to put together in a travel bag for our Wish Kids and their siblings. It’s like Christmas shopping! Only better, because I don’t get a bill after selecting the perfect items.
