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.
