Make-A-Wish Toy Shelves Need Replenishing

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

It is always in need of certain types of toys used as part of “first gifts” when meeting wish children and at wish presentation parties.

When a team of wish granters goes into a household, they bring a small gift for every child in the house. At a wish presentation party, they bring items that will enhance the wish.

Items needed include:

» 1. Gift cards — Best Buy, bowling, movies, grocery

» 2. Disposable camera with flash (regular and underwater)

» 3. Small travel games, card games, mad-libs, coloring books and crayons — activities for teens are greatest needs

» 4. Handheld electronic games with batteries

» 5. Portable DVD players, MP3 players, iPods

New, unwrapped items can be delivered to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri-Counties at 4222 Market St., Suite D in Ventura, or call 805.676.9474 to arrange a delivery time.

— Shanna Wasson Taylor is the CEO of Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
