The mission of Make-A-Wish Northeast New York is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength, and joy. The Northeast New York chapter, one of 62 in the U.S., serves the 15 counties that comprise the 518 area code and grants approx. 90-100 wishes each year for local children. Our core belief is that a wish is good medicine and works to transform the lives of wish kids and their families, one wish at a time. This year, we celebrate 30 years of wishes since the founding of the Northeast New York chapter in 1987. Over those 30 years, more than 1,700 Wish Kids and their families have been touched by the Power of a Wish!
