She has volunteered at Grandview Hospital for 14 years, although this was interrupted by the pandemic. Schnable has also been an auxiliary for the Tylersport Fire Company, assisting with fundraising activities for the past 15 years. Additionally, she volunteers with Chosen 300 Ministries in Pottstown once a month as a meal server. Her wish for hearing aids was be granted on April 20, 2022.

Phyllis Monsegur, a resident of The Grove Health & Rehabilitation in Hernando, had her wish to spend the day at the beach with her husband granted, thanks to our headquarters. Monsegur, 73, is a permanent resident of The Grove and is visited by her husband, John, every day. Because she is wheelchair-bound, it is difficult for her to leave the facility. They miss spending time together outside of the facility. Monsegur’s wish to spend some time at the beach and have lunch together was granted on February 6, 2022. Twilight Wish also provided her with a new outfit for this special occasion.
Elizabeth Sites, 69, a resident of Shoemakersville, Pennsylvania, recently had her wish for wheelchair accessible ramps installed on her home granted by our headquarters. Sites spent seven years in a nursing home after suffering three strokes. After she was released, she saved her money so she could afford to buy her own home. Since Sites lives on a fixed income, she could not afford to install the ramps on her own. A huge thank you to Mike Lawson of Lawson Creative who donated labor and some materials in order for this wish to be granted!
