The Make-A-Wish Foundation®
Why we support the Make-A-Wish Idaho Foundation
Did you know nearly half the Wishes granted in Idaho are from Southeast Idaho – Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Rexburg, etc. But, only 3-4% of the funding comes from that part of the state! We are always looking for ways to give back to our community, which is why Porter’s Office Products is proud to sponsor the Make A Wish Foundation.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® traces its beginning to one boy’s wish to be a Police Officer, and to date, more than 170,000 wishes have been granted to children with life-threatening medical conditions in the United States and its territories. There are Make-A-Wish Foundation chapters serving all areas of the United States, as well as international affiliates spanning five continents. Each chapter is responsible for granting wishes for eligible children within its designated geographic area and for raising the funds to fulfill those wishes.

How We’ve Helped
In 2023, Porter’s Office Products joined the second annual Walk for Wishes SE Idaho. Our team was able to raise $496! While a $1000 short of our goal, we were excited to be able to help the Make-A-Wish community, and plan to come back bigger and better for 2024.
