Thank you to Kristin Nelson and Lowell Catholic for the awesome donation of socks. New socks and underwear are some of the least donated items but most needed by our clients.

KB Toy Train donation

Thank you to Kaitlyn Brennan for her KB Toy Train donation dropped off yesterday. She launched the event two weeks ago “Fill the KB Toy Train for the Magic of Christmas,” and so many people joined from all over (SC – PA – NY – NH – ME – MA) and either shipped or joined the local and safe drop-off yesterday morning (even in the rain). From donors dropping off, their packages, Kaitlyn in the “toy train” enroute to Wish, to her helpers unloading at the warehouse! Such a wonderful undertaking of so many people to help our community this holiday season, and it all started with one person and one idea, thanks Kaitlyn, we know our clients will be very grateful!

Students step up

Thank you to Gateway Regional School District high school student Lily Dion for the awesome donation drive she dropped off recently. These basic items are so important to our clients who were already struggling before the pandemic started. We are grateful to our youth donors and schools for encouraging helping the community by reaching out to us and finding out our current needs and how they can help. If you would like to help out like Lily and earn community service hours for school, scouts or just to give back please email Tina at tina@thewishproject.org and she will be happy to talk to you about some options for holding a donation drive and our current needs.
