HERSHEY, Pa. — Make-A-Wish hosted a party for patients at Penn State Children’s Hospital on Tuesday, Aug. 9. Children had an opportunity to decorate T-shirts and enjoy pizza and ice cream.

The Make-A-Wish program partners with the hospital’s Child Life Program to help identify children who might benefit from the wish-granting program. This week’s party was designed to share word of the organization’s mission.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children across the United States with life-threatening medical conditions. It has granted more than 270,000 wishes since its inception in 1980.
