Nancy's Story

Volunteer NancyNovember 2014
Hometown: Aberdeen

About Nancy: I work for Quest Hospitality Suppliers. I have been married to Lonnie for 38 years. We have two children and two grandchildren.

Your connection with Make-A-Wish®? I help organize the annual “On the Road for Wishes” poker run in Aberdeen. I am also a wish granting volunteer.

How long have you been a volunteer? 11 years.

Why do you volunteer for Make-A-Wish? It’s a rewarding feeling to see the children’s smiles when they get their wish.

Tell us about a memorable wish experience: They have all been memorable in their own way. It’s fun to go to the airport when they are excited about getting on a plane to go on their trip.

If you could encourage someone who is thinking about volunteering for Make-A-Wish, what would you tell them? It’s a satisfying feeling to know that you are helping make someone’s day brighter and happier.
