Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. They are always in need of certain types of toys used as part of “first gifts” when meeting wish children and at wish presentation parties. When a team of wish granters goes into a household, they bring a small gift for every child in the house. At a wish presentation party they bring items that will enhance the wish. Items needed include:
- Gifts for Teens
- Popular kids toys (Disneys® toys, Legos®, etc.)
- Gift cards- Best Buy, book stores, bowling, movies, grocery
- Backpacks and Roller Luggage
- Handheld Computer Games
- Travel Games (UNO™, Connect the Dots, etc.)
- Travel Activity Books
- Gift bags
- Donated airline miles
New unwrapped items can also be delivered to Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties, 4001 Mission Oaks Blvd., Suite F, Camarillo, CA 93012. Call 805-676-9474 to arrange a delivery time.
