Make A Wish kicks off August campaign in Southern W.Va.

Posted:

CRAB ORCHARD (WVVA) -- What do the West Virginia Marketers and Grocers Association, the Make A Wish Foundation and Little General have in common?  For the next month, they're helping to make dreams come true for sick children in West Virginia.

They've already helped two local boys, Logan and Lars, treating them to trips of a lifetime.  The two are both battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Logan is headed to Disney in September, and Lars has already been to Washington D.C.

Lars can attest that this trip was some of the best treatment he's had.  "From experience, I know that it really helped me, I guess recover.  It just [let] me focus on something else instead," says Lars.  "You're not just taking a vacation from home, but you're taking a break from being sick and recovering."

Stars will be available with a one dollar donation to Make A Wish at all participating West Virginia Little General stores during August.
