Pennsylvania-based D&H Distributing has partnered with Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware and Susquehanna Valley to facilitate wishes for children across Dauphin County, Pa., for a full year beginning in April 2020, ensuring that all of the year’s granted wishes – estimated to amount to more than a dozen - will be funded. The company’s headquarters have been in the county for nearly 70 years.
The distributor worked with Make-A-Wish in 2018, sponsoring a trip to Universal Studios for Max, a Lancaster, Pa., 13-year-old with a neuromuscular disorder, and his family. Max and family members were on hand at the Dauphin County Offices on June 17 this year for the new partnership announcement at a celebration ceremony. The event was attended by D&H Co-Presidents Dan Schwab and Michael Schwab; Dennis J. Heron, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware and Susquehanna Valley; and three Dauphin County Commissioners: Hon. Jeff Haste, Mike Pries, and George P. Hartwick, III.
Wish-kid Max vacationed at Universal Studios, courtesy of Make-A-Wish, after a D&H-held wish reveal event for him and his family attended by more than 700 of D&H’s local co-owners/employees at the company’s headquarters last October.
