ABC Supply Co., Inc. Renews Multimillion Dollar National Partnership with Make-A-Wish
Make-A-Wish is excited to announce that ABC Supply Co., Inc., the largest wholesale distributor of roofing and other select exterior and interior building products in North America, has recommitted to creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses with a new $3 million pledge. Since becoming a national partner in 2020, ABC Supply has helped grant the wishes of more than 300 children nationwide.
“For three years, ABC Supply has made a profound impact on wish kids across the country, and we’re thankful for their continued support as we work together to grant the wish of every eligible child,” said Leslie Motter, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “Our partnerships are invaluable so that we can continue to create hope for wish families going through the unimaginable.”
Every hour, three kids are diagnosed with a critical illness in the U.S. ABC Supply’s commitment will help kids like Genesis, an 8-year-old with cancer who wished for a backyard treehouse. The ABC Supply team in Coal Valley, Ill., helped make her wish come true by donating construction materials. With her new treehouse, Genesis gets to play outside and enjoy being a kid. ABC Supply team members have provided similar wish granting support in other communities nationwide by volunteering their time and providing wish-specific resources.
“Giving back is at the heart of our business and culture,” said Mike Jost, chief operating officer of ABC Supply. “Make-A-Wish is an extraordinary organization, and we’re so happy to continue supporting their mission and efforts to grant wishes and deliver hope to many more deserving children.”
