For the last eight years, Westerville resident Nila Whitfield has helped make the wishes of more than 40 children come true.
As a result, the Make-A-Wish volunteer and fundraiser has been named an “outstanding volunteer” by the foundation’s Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana Region.
Whitfield said she first volunteered for Make-A-Wish after a friend’s child had a wish granted. That friend began volunteering and encouraged Whitfield to do the same.
“When I got ready to retire from Ohio State, she said, ‘Nila, this would be perfect for you,'” Whitfield said.
Whitfield said the families she meets are what make volunteering for Make-A-Wish great.
