We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina grants the wishes of children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 with life-threatening illnesses. Our chapter covers 51 counties in Central and Western NC and we have two offices, one in Charlotte and one in Greensboro.
Volunteering with Make A Wish has been a wonderful opportunity for myself and an amazing way to spend my free time! The staff really take the time to reach out to their volunteers and educate them on the organization's goals and expectations from their volunteers. They are very supportive, helpful, and responsive to any problems that could potentially arise and they make you feel important and integral to their wish granting team! I highly recommend anyone that has a heart for serving the community, especially the children, to get involved! You won't regret it!
