Hoag student Jordan Waner to get his wish

Adopt-a-Wish campaign underway in Fort Plain

 Fort Plain Jr. /Sr. High School math teacher Deborah Waner said the goal of this year’s Adopt a Wish (formerly known as “Adopt an Angel”) campaign is to raise $300 to help sponsor the wishes of children. The program is sponsored by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeast New York and runs through Dec. 31.

“We want to help, and this is a good opportunity to provide a child with his or her dream,” she said.

Mrs. Waner became involved with the program after the foundation granted her son’s wish of going to Disney World in Florida, and she asked what she could do to give back. That is why she and the rest of the faculty and staff in the district started selling Make-A-Wish paper angels to help grant the wishes of more children with life-threatening medical conditions.

This year, instead of angels, stars are available to students for $1 and $3 for adults. They can be purchased at the kiosks in both schools and in Mrs. Waner’s room. Make-A-Wish set a goal of $250,000 this year.

Stars are also available every First Niagara Bank branch, the Aviation Mall, Colonie Center, Crossgates Mall, Rotterdam Square and Wilton Mall.
