Idaho's Make-a-Wish grants 90 wishes to children a year throughout the state and thanks to Pocatello's Kia car dealership, a child in southeast Idaho will be able to have their wish come true.
The dealership donated more than $5,000, taking their total to $15,000 in three years. For every new Kia sold in August, they donated 100 dollars to the cause. Regional representatives say the money donated stays local and there's nothing more important than local support.
Julie Thomas, Regional Manager for Make-a-Wish Idaho says, "This means everything to Make-a-Wish. To have the local support that the funds will benefit a local wish child is fantastic."
Chris Russell, Owner of Pocatello Nissan Kia, "With what we did last year and the child we helped before, it makes it real easy to move forward on a third year and I'm sure we'll do it next year. Cause I challenge anybody out there to think of a better cause than Make-a-Wish Idaho."
If you'd like more information on if your child qualifies for Make-a-Wish, contact Julie Thomas a 238-wish, 238-9474.
