WENATCHEE, WA.- Makenna Schwab is at it again. The diminutive 16 year old Wenatchee teen is inspiring a new generation of local philanthropists. In 2016, Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington granted her wish to meet actor Chris Pratt. She chose to meet Pratt because she wanted to brainstorm ways they could work together to make a bigger difference for children facing critical illnesses just like her. Makenna’s wish continues to give back to children today, and this year she’ll be hosting a Make A Difference Day fundraiser and toy drive to benefit other wish kids. She talked about it with Lisa Bradshaw on this week’s Life With Lisa program on NCWLIFE . . .
Makenna will be collecting the items this Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm at Wenatchee Pediatric Dentistry in Wenatchee. You can see MacKenna’s interview on Life with Lisa later today at 1:30 on NCWLIFE. Right now there are 10 kids in the Wenatchee area who are waiting to receive a wish, and Makenna wants to help.
