Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
In a new partnership to support Arizona wish kids, CyraCom International, Inc. will donate phone interpretation and translation services to Make-A-Wish® Arizona, the state chapter of the international wish-granting organization.
Make-A-Wish Arizona has granted more than 4,200 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions since it was founded in 1980 when Chris Grecius, an Arizona boy, was granted his one true wish to become a police officer. Make-A-Wish Arizona is the original chapter of Make-A-Wish®, the international wish-granting organization that now has more than 67 state and international chapters.
Through CyraCom’s support, Make-A-Wish Arizona will be able to effectively communicate with Limited English Proficient children and their families to better make their wishes come true. Serving more than 280 wish kids per year throughout the state, Make-A-Wish Arizona will benefit greatly from CyraCom’s support.
“We are excited to have CyraCom on board with Make-A-Wish Arizona so that we can make every eligible child’s wish come true,” said Elizabeth Reich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish Arizona. “While we have volunteers and staff members who speak other languages, having this tool available to us at any time is going to help us achieve our mission in a more timely and effective manner.”
