Make a Wish Foundation, Posted July 16th, 2016 –
Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina is seeking bilingual (Spanish/English) volunteers to help them grant wishes. The role of the Wish Granter is to make the wishes of our wish children come true through creativity and imagination. Wish Granters visit the family and interview the wish child with the intent to determine the child’s wish and obtain required paperwork from the parents/legal guardians. This position requires excellent people skills, sensitivity and dependability. Wish Granters have the privilege of seeing first-hand a child’s most cherished dream become a reality. It is the most special and intimate way to volunteer. It can be very life changing for everyone involved. We hope you consider helping us make wishes come true! Please contact Julie Berry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-821-7111 for more information.
