Twilight Wish Foundation needs your help

Twilight Wish Foundation, a 501c3, needs your help to grant a wish that they received from an elderly couple from Missouri. Larry and Mary have been married 48 years and have three children and nine grandchildren. Their wish is for a new oven to replace their old one that broke on Thanksgiving morning.

Like many other seniors living on a fixed income, the rising costs of food, gasoline, utilities and prescriptions do not allow for any extras. In fact, Larry's tractor has been broken for months because they can't afford to fix it. They have given to others throughout their life together, donating surplus fruit and vegetables from their garden to neighbors and the senior citizens center in their town. Larry was a volunteer firefighter, President of the Chamber of Commerce, a church elder, and an Adult Sunday School teacher.

Their simple wish for a basic need illustrates the struggle that many elderly Americans face today. If you would like to help grant this wish or any of our other open wishes, please visit their website www.twilightwish.org or to mail your donation: 32 Union Street, Doylestown, PA 18901. To learn how you can help others in need call 215-230-8777 ext. 100.
Funding for this wish will go directly to grant this wish. If excess funds are received, the would appreciate the opportunity to use them to grant other basic necessity Twilight Wishes unless your request otherwise.
