Christmas Giving Program Wish Family Application
Each year, individuals, families, organizations and businesses generously sponsor Wish Families at Christmas time. These Christmas Sponsors understand the often considerable demands of caring for medically fragile children and the financial hardships families may endure as a result.
Through our Christmas sponsors’ generosity, the holiday season is a bit brighter for many of our Wish Families. If you feel you could use some help this holiday, we would like to extend to you a warm invitation to enroll as a 2019 Christmas Wish Family! A Christmas Wish Family is defined as the wish child, their parents (or legal guardians) and any siblings currently residing in the household.
We have a limited number of sponsors available to pair with our Wish Families, so families will be paired based on need.
Applications are due November 4, 2019.
Please print the application and email, fax or mail to:
Wishing Star Foundation
9 S. Washington St, Suite 420
