Please Help! Sam's Wish Kits


Make-A-Wish New Mexico is an organization that does so much for local families. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, they have been unable to fulfill wishes at this time. However one wish they can try to make happen is the wish of 17 year old Sam Neale. Sam's wish is to be able to give back to health care workers with "Sam's Wish Kits"

Sam wants to create what Make-A-Wish is calling Sam’s Wish Kits, which will include items to help those on the front lines disinfect themselves after shifts to put them more at ease when returning home to their families as well as provide some necessities that they may have trouble getting access to, like antibacterial soap. They are hoping to make at least 100 kits to start.

  • Restaurant Gift Cards
  • Grocery Store Gift Cards
  • Bleach (to create a cleaning solution to disinfect their shoes)

COLLECTION SITES:

The sites will be manned by no more than two people, who will maintain a 6-foot distance, as well as wear a mask and gloves during collection. We ask that you put your items in your trunk, so that staff can easily collect items without any skin-to-skin interaction.
