Northern West Virginia Office Grants 1,000th Wish

Bridget with family, friends, Kohl's and Make-A-Wish staff

Bridget on her wish dayOn Thursday, February 27, 2014, 18-year-old Bridget, who is diagnosed with an immune-mediated neurological condition, thought she was just going shopping with her mom.  However, she was surprised when she walked into the Kohl's in Clarksburg, WV, to learn that her wish for a bedroom makeover was coming true. While at Kohl's, Bridget picked out new bedroom accessories and decorations, as her new Ashley bedroom furniture was being delivered and set up in her room. 

"She's a great kid.  She's very caring, and she thinks about everyone else before herself.  And for this to happen to her, it's a blessing," said Bridget's mother, Maxie Glenn, told WBOY TV.

This wish marks the 1,000th wish that the Northern West Virginia regional office has granted since it began in 1990.  The Northern West Virginia office is located in Morgantown, WV.  For contact information, click here.
