Terri Mach of Binghamton enjoys seeing the smiles, laughter and screams of joy from children who learn their dream is coming true.

Mach is a volunteer wish granter for Make a Wish of Central New York which serves 15 counties including Broome, Tioga, Chenango and Tompkins Counties. Make a Wish is a national organization which grants wishes for children with serious illnesses from ages 2.5 to 18.

Mach is one of 259 volunteers for the Central New York chapter. Last year 72 wishes were granted, said Dyana Smolen, manager of public relations/communications for the Central New York chapter based in Syracuse.

‘Volunteers are truly the heart of our organization,’ Smolen said. ‘From wish granting to fundraising to helping at special events, our volunteers are on the front line of carrying out our mission to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.’
