people next to donationsThank you to all of you who brought donations for our toy and clothing drive for The Wishing Well Foundation.

The Wishing Well is a nonprofit agency serving abused and neglected youth within the foster care system, providing them with necessities they can call their own. Our Elmhurst champion of The Wishing Well described why she gives, “These are lost children in the middle of chaos, and we can give them something nice to call their own.”

Children often arrive to their foster families without notice and in frightening circumstances without anything familiar or safe, often with just the clothes they are wearing. The work of Ericka and Brent Thompson truly answers the call to serve the “least of these”, the most vulnerable members of our community, those whose futures are most at risk. Their work and our community’s support are investments we all make in our future.

Elmhurst is grateful for The Wishing Well Foundation and honored to highlight their work. For anyone interested in donating to this organization, you may do so at The Wishing Well Foundation website or through Amazon. The Wishing Well is also a 501(c)(3) organization you may contribute to through AmazonSmile.
