'Wishtober' will meet kids' needs and grant wishes | Community Spirit
(WMC-TV) - The month of October has been renamed "Wishtober" at Chick-fil-A Southaven.
Make-A-Wish Mid-South is partnering with the restaurant to grant the wishes of some very dseserving children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The campaign kicks off October 8 at the Chick-fil-A on 235 Goodman Road West.
Participants who come to the restaurant will have the chance to stock the shelves of the Wish Closet.
Make-A-Wish organizers are looking for items like DVDs, iTunes cards or sporting goods.
Right now, there is a need for items specifically for boys and girls age 13 to 18.
Owner operator Stuart Davidson hopes to make the "Wishtober" campaign a great success.
"We want to be a part of providing those special moments and powerful experiences for children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition," he said.
Here is how you can help:
Starting October 8th, stop into the Chick-fil-A Southaven location and pick up a Wish List.
Buy an item on that list, return it to Chick-fil-A and get an exclusive invitation to the first ever "Wishtober" party on October 27.
That party will feature food and prizes.
