South Burlington based Make-A-Wish® Vermont recently presented a new award, the Corporate Partner of the Year Award. The recipient of this award has shown passion for our mission, generosity of goods and/or services, countless hours of time and significant monetary contributions to Make-A-Wish Vermont throughout the year. This year’s recipient is Bond Auto Parts. For nine years, Bond Auto Parts has helped make Vermont wishes come true! The Make-A-Wish Vermont community is a tightly bound family that is tied together by the same common goal: to grant each eligible Vermont child a moment of carefree magic, their one-true-wish. The recipients of this award are not only united as part of a corporation, they are also part of one family – a family that opened their hearts and joined the Make-A-Wish community as a whole in 2004. They decided together to consolidate their philanthropic efforts and chose Make-A-Wish Vermont as the beneficiary of those efforts. From sales within their stores, to golf tournaments, to event sponsorships, to walk teams, to committee volunteering, you name it and they have done it. Over the past nine years, Bond Auto Parts has helped make countless Vermont wishes come true.
Make-A-Wish Vermont grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since its inception in 1989, Make-A-Wish Vermont has granted every eligible Vermont child›s wish, over 620 wishes to date. For more information please visit www.vermont.wish.org.
