Volunteering is a great way to help. With a small staff and so many local children eligible for wishes, accomplishing our mission is only possible with the support of our wonderful volunteers.

We have many opportunities, whether you can give a few hours each month or a few days each year. Our volunteers range in age from 18 to 90. You can help make the wishes of children in your local community come true when you become a volunteer for Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic. We invite you to share the power of a wish ®! It will have a powerful impact on you.

  • #WishesMatterWednesday Check out this adventurous wish! Lacy had an amazing time on her wish trip to New Zealand; she visited the beach, went zip lining and even toured Hobbiton Movie Set, where The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies were filmed. She is diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, and the wish gave her a chance to go on new and exciting adventures.
