Make-A-Wish NH forms alliance with state police chiefs association

New Hampshire and the New Hamp­shire Association of Chiefs of Police have formed a new alliance.

In an effort to better serve the chil­dren of New Hampshire, the police as­sociation will be able to help identify children who may be eligible for a wish, as well as provide logistical consider­ations for Make-A-Wish New Hamp­shire as it bring wishes to life.

"It is a logical and solid connection to collaborate with Make-A-Wish New Hampshire," said Chief Robert Cormier, president of the police asso­ciation.

"We, the leaders in New Hampshire law enforcement, have supported the youth in New Hampshire through our Cadet Academy, scholarship program and commitment to the Special Olym­pics; this is another great opportunity to have that positive impact on both children and their families."

Julie Baron, president and chief ex­ecutive officer of Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, said. "We are so incredibly honored to have a group of people who do so much for their communities ex­pand their giving to include our wish children.

"This will be a great benefit to chil­dren in New Hampshire who face life-threatening medical conditions."

Since 1987, when the New Hamp­shire chapter was founded, more than 1,275 wishes have been granted.
