Make-A-Wish Northeast New York launched its 20th Annual Adopt An Angel campaign Friday, continuing through the end of the year. With the support of volunteers and donors, proceeds from this annual holiday event will help to fund the chapter's mission of granting wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The local chapter's annual goal is to raise $1,000,000 to grant about 100 wishes for seriously ill children. The Adopt An Angel campaign is the organization's largest fundraiser, and 100 percent of the funds are used to grant the heartfelt wishes of local children.
Angels are available for a $3 donation in Plattsburgh at Champlain Centre, Maplefields, and at many local schools and businesses. They may also be ordered by phone at 782-4673 for $3.75 each (includes shipping and handling) through the Make-A-Wish Northeast New York office. Online contributions can be made at www.neny.wish.org, and a $10 mobile contribution can be made by texting ANGEL to 50555.
