In addition to individual donors, Make-A-Wish Alabama also relies on its partners in the business community. America’s Thrift Stores has been a supporter since October 2017. With 11 stores in Alabama, President and CEO Ken Sobaski says the partnership has been a way for them to make an impact across the state. For every pound of items collected, America’s Thrift Stores donates a certain amount to grant wishes. Last year, they gave “Make-A-Wish Alabama” nearly $1,000,000. Mr. Sobasksi says for him and his employees, it’s personal.
