Make-A-Wish Week Proves Great Success

The NDP Make-A-Wish committee presents a check to Make-A-Wish AZ officials in Our Lady of Grace Garden on Monday, April 25. The NDP Wish Week generated more than $18,600 in donations raising enough money for our Wish Kid Davey, and the start of a wish for another child.

Through the generosity of our parents, students, faculty, staff and administrators, we raised $18,615.33 during NDP Wish Week for Make-A-Wish Arizona. We were able to grant the wish for our "Wish Kid" Davey, and help fund another child's wish as well! Thank you to Ms. Lopez and the Make-A-Wish committee at NDP for their hard work in making Wish Week possible.

Members of the Make-A-Wish Committee include Madelyn Fraunces, Tegan Kelley, Peyton Layne, Ella Osmussen, Charlotte Park, Meagan Reuter and Peyton Schidler.

"I'm so grateful to everyone who made our Wish Week a success," said NDP counselor and Make-A-Wish Committee moderator, Ms. Lopez. "On behalf of the committee, I give a big shout out to our parents, Baking Club, Mr. King and all of our sponsors. The Make-A-Wish committee appreciates the support of the NDP community for helping us meet and exceed our goal," she added.
