Make-A-Wish

MAW Logo blue white

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

Wish granter volunteers interview wish kids to determine their wishes, and send in paperwork to the office. When the wish is approved, the wish granters find creative ways to "enhance" the child’s wish.

Our chapter typically grants around 2-3 wishes per year for families who communicate with ASL and often has a difficult time finding volunteers who can help.

We are looking for people who are fluent in ASL, who can help interviewing wish families in ASL. Under normal circumstances, these interviews happen in-person, though during the pandemic, we conduct these interviews virtually, on platforms like Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc.

Deaf and Hard-of-hearing people are strongly encouraged to apply.
