SouthWest Water Company Grants Wish For Daughter of Employee

August 4, 2015

There are so many rewarding aspects of getting to tell our clients’ stories. Over the past few years at ECPR, I have had the honor of getting to work with Make-A-Wish through our client, SouthWest Water Company.

SouthWest Water Company has sponsored five wishes through Make-A-Wish over the past two years. Monarch Utilities, a subsidiary of SouthWest Water Company, recently collaborated with Make-A-Wish North Texas to grant the wish of 8-year-old Magen from Athens, Texas, who has Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis.

On Friday, July 24, Make-A-Wish hosted a party for 8-year-old Magen and her family and friends in Athens, Texas, to celebrate the wish—to be a zoologist for a day at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska. Magen and her family visited the Omaha zoo on Tuesday, July 28.

SouthWest Water has granted wishes across Texas, however this one hit closest to home because Magen happens to be the daughter of one of SouthWest Water Company’s employees. When the company heard about her wish, they gave Make-A-Wish a call right away.

Make-A-Wish parties are filled with excitement and hope not only for the wish kids, but also their families. At ECPR, it’s a privilege to help share these stories with the community.
