The store allows Wish kids to choose gifts for their siblings who have also been through a tough time. “We have over 140 kids waiting for their wishes to be granted right now and we gave them an opportunity to pick out a special toy this holiday season to give to each one of their siblings,” said Sara Lister, president of Make-A-Wish New Mexico.
Donations made to the Make-A-Wish New Mexico fundraising page from now until Thursday, Dec. 23 will be matched.
