WBCL/Ft Wayne had a wonderful summer outreach. WBCL listeners contributed over $40,000 in cash and in-kind gifts to grant four kids’ wishes through the Make-A-Wish organization. WBCL Executive Director Ross McCampbell says,”One big misperception regarding Make-A-Wish clients is that they are all terminal. We were able to emphasize the fact that by granting a wish, you are helping the child and family in their fight against illness. The positive experiences resulting from a granted wish provide a strong base of encouraging memories or ongoing experiences to draw from when those moments of battle arise. The wishes ranged from a trip to a Hawaiian pineapple plantation to a total backyard renovation.”
