In the true spirit of community and compassion, PJ’s Coffee is collaborating with Make-A-Wish to fulfill a special wish for a child in need.
Now until Sunday, Dec. 31, Make-A-Wish and PJ’s Coffee will raise awareness and funds for children with critical illnesses. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase a “Make-A-Wish Star” in increments of $1, $3 or $5 and sign their name on the star to be taped inside participating PJ’s Coffee locations.
As part of this fundraising effort, Make-A-Wish will bring to life 18-year-old Theresa’s wish to travel from her home in Texas to see snow and the northern lights in Alaska for the first time. Theresa, who has a gastrointestinal disorder, has an energy that shines as glorious and bright as the northern lights themselves.
“The hope and joy of a wish like Theresa’s are one of the most valuable gifts one can give through the power of community — it’s transformational,” says Shelly Millwee, Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana president and CEO. “Together with PJ’s Coffee, we are excited to see our friends and neighbors rally around Theresa, and all of our wish kids, to bring many more wishes like hers to life.”
