Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas is looking for individuals in the community who love kids, are creative, thoughtful, and excellent listeners. If you fit this mold, then you are the perfect person to make wishes come true through our wish granter volunteer opportunity!
A wish granter is a Make-A-Wish volunteer who works with wish children to discover, plan and fulfill a wish. Wish granters work in teams of two; use resources wisely by seeking donated goods and services; and make each wish a unique, magical and memorable experience for the child. Our wish granters understand these wishes-come-true are powerful, life-changing events that strengthen families and bring communities together.
**Volunteers that reside in the state of Missouri or Kansas is required**
