To date, Make-A-Wish®
Hudson Valley has granted more than 2,600 wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions, living throughout the Hudson Valley. Without the help of volunteers, like you
, none of this would be possible.
To carry out our mission, we depend on the help of more than 300 volunteers throughout the eight New York counties of Delaware, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester.
