CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Preschools all over North Carolina worked together to raise thousands for Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina.
From selling cookies to hosting an art auction, all 10 of Chesterbrook Academy’s preschools worked hard for donations.
After raising almost $7,000, they celebrated at the Make-A-Wish office in Charlotte.
“These children that get wishes granted need some happiness in their life and it just makes my heart happy that we can be a part of that,” said Melissa House, Chesterbrook Academy principal and parent.
When donations are made to Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina, it helps them grant wishes to local children with critical illnesses.
“The average cost of a wish is around $6,000,” said Dana Nobles with Make-A-Wish.
She added around 350 wishes were granted this year.
