Make-A-Wish Idaho to Grant Child’s Wish for an RV Camper in Bonners Ferry on June 11, 2020

June 05, 2020

Wish kid Christopher of Bonners Ferry, Idaho wished for an RV camper, and that wish will be granted by Make-A-Wish Idaho on June 11, 2020. Christopher is 3 years old and has cystic fibrosis. He is a fan of monster trucks and camping.

The RV camper comes from Blue Dog RV in Post Falls, Idaho. The company has agreed to defray a significant portion of the cost as well as provide complimentary upgrades, hook-ups and will host a celebration of the wish at their storefront located at 714 W. Seltice Way.

Post Falls Police Chief, Pat Knight, wish granter, RV aficionado and part of Make-A-Wish Idaho’s northern Idaho leadership team, was instrumental in putting this wish together. "We're very happy to be granting this wish during these unprecedented times. I'm excited that Christopher and his family will be able to enjoy this camper over the summer and maybe have a break from all of life's uncertainty," said Chief Knight.

Make-A-Wish Idaho faces a record number of wishes that are waiting to be granted as a result of the recent need to postpone all wishes that involve travel due to the public and medical concerns of COVID-19. Nearly 80% of all wishes involve travel, and 40 wishes from Make-A-Wish Idaho were impacted with additional wishes being impacted every day. The challenging circumstances have inspired Make-A-Wish to think creatively about how to bring hope and joy. Make-A-Wish Idaho is proud to be granting wishes like Christopher’s during these uncertain times.
