35 Wishes

November 15, 2011

As we commemorate the 35th year of Hubbard House we would like to ask the community to help us fulfill 35 special wishes. The most important wish is for peace in every home and that every child grows up in a safe, loving home but we realize these wishes will not be fulfilled in this anniversary year. Below are 35 wishes that could come true this year with your help. Fulfillment of a portion of a wish, an entire wish or multiple wishes will have a significant impact on our agency! If you are able to grant a wish please contact Jami Gaff Bueker at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 354-0076 ext 211.
