Katharine's Wish is an annual toy drive to benefit children receiving medical care in Western Wisconsin.
Drive runs November 11-22
From News Release:
In July 2012, Katharine became the youngest member in the Eau Claire Community Foundation's history to create a donor-advised fund. She did this in order to expand her efforts in helping more children. She has 5 years to raise $25,000 for this fund and in just one year has already raised $20,000. Once she reaches this goal, the earnings and, if needed, a portion of the principal will go directly to grants recommended for hospitals to purchase toys for children receiving medical care. A tax deductible donation to this fund can be made anytime online at www.KatharinesWish.org or through the Eau Claire Community Foundation at www.eccommunityfoundation.org. Mail your checks to ECCF/Katharine’s Wish, 306 S. Barstow St. Suite 104, Eau Claire, WI 54701.
