Wish Kid Luke
Again Delivers

Wish kid Luke can make a believer out of the biggest of grinches. On Dec. 7, Believe Day, the 11-year-old Hoosick Falls student hauled in more than 70,000 letters to Macy's addressed to Santa, all to benefit Make-A-Wish ® . It was his fourth year of serving as one of the great ambassadors for children with critical illnesses.
Pyper's Messy

Pyper had one wish, and one wish only: to be slimed. So Pyper got her wish: It was pretty ... as in pretty cool.

Students at Boulevard Elementary School in Gloversville thought they were just going to a November assembly on Make-A-Wish Northeast New York’s Adopt-A-Wish campaign.

But that was just the beginning.

Annual Holiday Campaign Exceeds '17
The final numbers are still coming in, but donations to the recent Make-A-Wish® Northeast New York's annual Adopt-A-Wish Holiday Campaign exceeded 2017, and by a healthy margin.

This has truly been a season of giving -- and we are so very grateful for your time and generosity. As of mid-January, the campaign had raised $209,000, and we're still receiving donations from local schools and businesses.

All together, the malls raised $78,384: That is more than $15,000 above last year's total! Additionally, every mall raised more money this year than last year, and Colonie Center set a record for the most raised there. A special thanks goes out to our hundreds of volunteers who made the campaign such a success.
