Today is my son’s wish day. There are not enough ways to say thank you and our day hasn’t
even started yet. We have been up since 4:50a.m.; our emotions are very high. My favorite thing
about MAW is that you don’t try and ‘fix’ things. You don’t pretend everything will be all right.
You come in to our homes and you listen to our children - you truly listen to their hearts, their
dreams and you work so hard to bring life to those dreams. You honor the journey the children
and their families have been on and for that I am extremely thankful.” -Troy’s Mom
                                   Volunteers bring the mission of the Foundation to life. From Aroos-
                                   took to York County and everywhere in between, volunteers visit

                        9/1/09 -   with children and families to determine their greatest wish, and
                                   then go to great lengths to ensure that the reality of a child’s wish
                                   surpasses their wildest dreams. Volunteers are also an indispens-
                                   able part of our fund-raising - organizing walks, bake sales, auc-
                                   tions, and numerous other events that they create on their own.
                                   The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Maine exists due to the work of
                                   hundreds of volunteers statewide.
