You know what they say, the couple who volunteers together, stays together.
Ok, maybe that’s just us who say that, but we think it’s true! Take it from Sean and Jill Gilliam. They volunteer with Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada every week and couldn’t be happier.
Sean works for Allegiant, one of our amazing partners. He and Jill began their journey with us after attending the grand opening of The Wishing Place on the Allegiant campus.
Jill has loved her experience so far, but she especially enjoys making welcome phone calls and getting to be the first contact families have with Make-A-Wish.
“Hearing their initial excitement and being part of that moment is amazing,” Jill says.
For Sean, his most impactful moment came when he was able to be part of a Wish reveal. But he also wants everyone to know that even the smallest amount of time spent with Make-A-Wish can have a lasting effect.
“Whether you have two hours a week to give or only two hours a month, your help is appreciated at Make-A-Wish. Everyone has something special to give, something unique to contribute,” Sean says.
What’s one word Sean and Jill would use to describe Make-A-Wish?
“Not only is our journey at Make-A-Wish fun and fulfilling, but we are so happy about the friendships we are making along the way,” says Jill.
