At the end of 2014, Carla Nappi informed the Wish House that she regrettably would no longer be able to volunteer with our chapter as she was relocating to Kansas. Over the years, we've grown close to Carla and her family as she was neighbors with our very own President & CEO Tom Conklin. The Nappi family have been a great supporter of our chapter and we thank them.
Carla has worn many hats while donating her time with the chapter including serving as co-chair to our Annual Wish Ball, Volunteering at our Annual Walk for Wishes, and volunteering as a public speaker for our Kids for Wish Kids program. Over the past 8 years, Carla has also helped grant close to 15 wishes for children in the Hudson Valley serving as a wish granter and as a wish granter mentor.
We cannot express enough our heartfelt thanks to Carla for her dedication to our mission and to our wish families. The compassion Carla has shown to the families we serve is an inspiration for us all. Thank you and we wish you all the best in Kansas, they're gaining a truly phenomenal volunteer!
*Carla plans to continue volunteering at the Make-A-Wish Kansas chapter once she settles into her new home.
