“The NHCUL is proud to serve as the sponsor of the 1,000th Wish for Make-A-Wish®. The NHCUL welcomed the opportunity to provide Wish Child David with his dream come true – a castle of his own in his back yard. Since 1996, the NHCUL has been a proud partner of Make-A-Wish®, raising a total of $1.5 million dollars to support the goals of this benevolent organization: granting wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said NHCUL Chairman, Michael L’Ecuyer. “Throughout the year, the 24 member credit unions of the NHCUL join forces to raise funds for Make-A-Wish®, through a variety of fundraising activities. I am proud of the accomplishments made by the NHCUL for Make-A-Wish® and appreciate the support of the 490,000 New Hampshire residents who are credit union members and support and believe in the mission of credit unions,” added L’Ecuyer.
Julie P. Baron, CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Hampshire, thanked and praised the NHCUL for their support of Make-A-Wish® in granting the 1,000th Wish. “To have the support of the NHCUL in granting the 1,000th Wish – the very same month our organization celebrates its 25th Anniversary – is a wonderful accomplishment and collaboration,” said Baron. “Their support of our mission to grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions has brought joy to so many children. Their impact has reached every corner of the state – bringing hope, strength and joy into the lives of children who are facing some very grown up battles,” said Baron.
