Make-A-Wish Foundation Wants to Make More Dreams Come True For St. Cloud Kids [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD -- The Make-A-Wish Foundation wants to help make more wishes come true for kids in the St. Cloud area.
Make-A-Wish Minnesota has been granting wishes for over 30 years to kids throughout the state.
Tammy Block is the Vice President of Development at Make-A-Wish Minnesota. She says kids don't need to have a terminal illness to qualify for a wish.
A child needs to be between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 and be referred by a doctor, family member or themselves.
Coborn's recently granted a wish to a 9-year-old Ramsey boy named Nolan, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Communications Manager Rebecca Kurowski says granting a wish not only impacts the child but the entire family.
Coborn's gave him a game room in his basement, complete with pinball machine, big-screen TV and video games, and his own mini fridge.
Block says the foundation is trying to grant more wishes to kids in the St. Cloud area and have been working with the hospital to make that possible.
Kurowski says Coborn's launched their Make-A-Wish campaign in their stores this past weekend.
She says they wouldn't be able to help make someone's wish come true without the partnership of the Make-A-Wish foundation and the generosity of their customers.
Make-A-Wish is always looking for volunteers to help make wishes come true. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer you can visit their website www.mn.wish.org.
