Details:

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish® supporters have helped grant over 16,000 wishes to children with critical illnesses in Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, with about 100 wishes happening Central Ohio each year. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Additionally, parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic.

 

Your team will be working with Make-A-Wish to grant a girl named, Jenny, her wish. Jenny has autism and is affected by sensory issues such as bright lights and sharp objects. As a volunteer, your team will transform Jenny's room into a sensory safe haven where she can find calmness and peace in her play area. Projects will include, taping the room and applying two coats of paint to prepare the room for the assembly of her toys.

 

Please note: 

We will meet as a group at Starbucks (1581 Hilliard Rome Rd, Columbus, OH 43228) for an orientation provided by Make-A-Wish. Afterward, the group will drive 10 minutes to Jenny's residence to support the painting project.

 

  • A lead volunteer from Make-A-Wish will provide orientation and training at Starbucks at 1:30pm.
  • Please wear comfortable and casual clothing you don't mind getting dirty or paint on. 
  • If you have a Jeni's t-shirt, please wear it for photographs. 
  • Parking is available on the street. 
  • A Besa representative will be on-site to greet your team and answer any questions.
