JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Region 8 has a wonderful tradition of giving back, and this week is another opportunity.
It’s our yearly Have-A-Heart Wish-A-Thon.
This Friday you’ll see bucket brigades in Jonesboro, Bay, Brookland, Bono, Caraway, Harrisburg, Hoxie, Marked Tree, Paragould, Piggott, Rector, Trumann, Walnut Ridge, and Weiner.
They’re collecting money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Every penny stays right here to give children with critical illnesses an opportunity to receive a wish.
It’s a chance for these special kids, and their families, to step away from reality.
For some children it’s a day trip or special gift. For others a trip - say to Disney World.
It’s through your donations - large and small - that make it possible.
Over the years you’ve given enough to grant hundreds of wishes to local children.
Join KAIT and the Jonesboro Radio Group this Friday for the Have-A-Heart Wish-A-Thon for Make-A-Wish.
