Since receiving its charter in 1986, Make-A-Wish®
Hudson Valley has granted the wishes of more than 2,600 children in the Hudson Valley region with critical illnesses
Our first office was located in Mt. Kisco, NY over Danny's Cheese Shop. In 2001, we moved to the Wish House
in Tarrytown, NY.
Serving the eight counties of Delaware, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester, the Chapter’s mission is to ensure that every child residing in the Hudson Valley who qualifies for Make-A-Wish services is granted his or her fondest wish. While wishes are referred and completed on an ongoing basis, an average of 115 wishes are in progress at any given time.
A volunteer Board of Directors and staff of 10, together with volunteers, donors and medical professionals from throughout the region, make wish granting possible. Among the Hudson Valley Chapter’s recently completed wishes include: to have vlogging equipment; meeting Angela Bassett; going to the MLB All-Star game; traveling to Hawaii; a trip to Disney World and being a pop star for a day, to name a few.
America provides the Hudson Valley Chapter with technical assistance, training, national coordination and support; however, all funds required to grant wishes are raised entirely within the Hudson Valley.
