The annual Adopt-A-Wish Holiday Campaign is scheduled to kick off in the North Country on November 15 at Champlain Centre, and in the Greater Capital Region on November 17 at Crossgates Mall. We are truly excited for this year's campaign, as we celebrate 35 years of wishes! We need you to make this year one of our most successful campaigns yet as we come together to celebrate more than 2,000 wishes granted, and gear up for the many wishes coming in the next year! We can't do it without you! Truly, the Adopt-A-Wish Campaign is made possible by the hundreds of incredible community and corporate partners and volunteers that generously give of their time and talent! 

Volunteer for Booths: We're seeking volunteers to support the campaign by selling stars in the malls (Crossgates Mall, Colonie Center, Aviation Mall, Wilton Mall and Champlain Centre). 

  • ALL volunteers over the age of 18 will need to complete a Conflict of Interest form (annually) and a background check (every 3 years) BEFORE your volunteer slot (if you have already completed one as a wish granting volunteer, or completed your background check during last year's campaign, you do not need to do so again).
  • A maximum of 4 volunteers will be allowed PER shift - this is a regulation set by the malls, and we will respectfully abide.
  • While Covid conditions have improved, it is still with us and we want to keep our volunteers safe! If you are feeling unwell, please let the chapter know, stay home, and get better! If you have concerns, we encourage you to wear a mask. Cleaning supplies will be provided to wipe down touched surfaces at the end of your shift.

Star Sales at Schools, Businesses and Community Events: This year, we are able to have schools and businesses participate in selling stars at their locations! If you think your organization or a school you are connected to would be interested, please let us know! Additionally, we have several community events that we are participating in to support the campaign. As those opportunities become available, they will be added to the Signup Genius page as an option!
