Jane S., 73, Philadelphia, PA

Jane used to love volunteering at the food pantry run by her church.  She also loved tutoring students at Girard College.  She has stopped doing both because her hearing has deteriorated to the point she can’t understand what people are saying.  She misses her great-grandson’s voice, the sound of the birds chirping and listening to music.  She says without the ability hear, the world is a lonely place.  Please help us grant this wish to help Jane regain her hearing!  We need to raise $2,900 to provide her with two hearing aids.  Please donate today!

Luther Woods, Hatboro, PA

Legendary Philadelphia disc jockey, Jerry Blavat, the “Geator with the Heater,” paid a visit to the residents of Luther Woods Nursing & Rehabilitation in Hatboro on Sunday, March 8, 2020, thanks to Twilight Wish Foundation.  Blavat emceed a fun 50s and 60s- themed sock hop for the residents there who had no idea he’d be hosting their event.  Although the majority of the residents are wheelchair bound, Blavat managed to get them singing, tapping their feet and clapping their hands to the familiar tunes of their youth. This wish was made possible by a generous donation from Carol and Jack Lieberman.
