CINCINNATI, April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Family RV Group™ ("Family RV"), a specialty retailer of recreational vehicles and services with nine locations in the Midwest, combined forces with Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana (Make-A-Wish OKI) and presented campers to three worthy families this past January & March.
Wish kid Mackenzie and her family of Cincinnati, OH, a wish kid and her family from Lima, OH, and wish kid Eli and his family of Lexington, KY all had a wish to enjoy the outdoors with their families in a camper. All three wish kids are battling a critical illness and our Family RV Group stores stepped up to the challenge of fulfilling their wishes. Each General Manager and their store associates (Nick Raymond-Colerain Family RV™ Cincinnati; Jamey Tolle-Colerain Family RV™ Columbus and Joe Steffen-Northside Family RV™) worked with Make-A-Wish OKI and each family to find the perfect camper that met their needs. Once all the details were worked out, each store presented campers to those deserving families.
Walt Rodgers, Family RV CEO said, "We love partnering with Make-A-Wish each year in helping families reach their camper dreams! We want all our customer's families to go camping without worrying about their safety, security or comfort. We know the wish kids and their families will be able to enjoy their camping experience together and we are excited to provide them a way to make special memories that last!"
"We're so grateful to community partners like the Family RV Group who help make life-changing wishes come true for kids and their families," said Make-A-Wish OKI President and CEO Doug Kelly. "This is the 2nd year that Family RV has stepped up and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership to bring even more wishes to life for local families in the future!"
