Do you know a senior who could use a bit of extra joy? Someone who has a wish they set aside? Or, maybe you’re that senior? Making those wishes come true is our mission. We grant numerous wishes each year for seniors who are either permanent residents of a care facility or have annual incomes under  $38K ($44K couple). But, we can‘t grant a wish if we don’t know about it! Nominate yourself or  someone you know today. You’ll find guidelines  and an application at or by calling 716-508-2121.
