Make-A-Wish New Hampshire has expanded their board of directors. They have recently welcomed the addition of Joshua Solloway to serve as a new member of their leadership and advisory team. Solloway is the vice president of Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services based in Hooksett, NH. He has been an active volunteer and fundraiser for Make-A-Wish since 2011.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to expand the mission of Make-A-Wish here in New Hampshire,” explains Solloway. “There is a tremendous leadership team already in place. I just hope I can add value and keep the positive momentum going.”
The mission of Make-A-Wish is to “grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.” Currently Make-A-Wish New Hampshire grants about 85-90 wishes per year.
When asked about his goals as a board member, Solloway had two priorities. “First, is to expand our mission by educating more people in the community about what Make-A-Wish is doing,” says Solloway. One of the easiest ways this is done is by attending and inviting people to a Wish Tour. The second priority for Solloway “is to help grow our sustainable funding through our Wish Society memberships.”
Individuals that are familiar with Soil-Away and interested in connecting more with Make-A-Wish are encouraged to email Solloway with any inquiries.
