There are currently 56 Make-A-Wish kids in Wyoming; 7 of them are in Fremont County
“We need community support more than ever before,” Make-A-Wish Wyoming CEO Morgan Poloncic told the County 10 Podcast.
There are currently 56 Wyoming children battling critical illness who are on the “wish-list.” 7 of those are right here in Fremont County. At this time last year, Make-A-Wish Wyoming had 38 wish kids, so early 2020 has seen a significant increase.
Morgan attributes some of the increase to the fact that more people are aware of what Make-A-Wish Wyoming is doing. Currently there is a large demand for help through volunteering, financial contributions, and other donations. Poloncic explained that many of the wishes include travel, so airline miles are a large help.
Residents with “expertise” in certain fields are needed as well.
Currently, in Fremont County, Make-A-Wish is looking for someone who can help in vehicle restoration. Statewide, there’s a large demand for folks in the construction field to help out.
If you can help in any way, all the details about Make-A-Wish Wyoming can be found right here.
Recently, Shoshoni Schools collected $2,400 in donations to the organization.
And, the Lander Elk’s Lodge presented Make-A-Wish Wyoming with a $2,000 check.
