RV City, an RV dealership based in Morinville, Alberta, and Jayco Inc. recently teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Northern Alberta branch, to make a young girl’s dream come true.

RV City, assisted by Jayco Inc,. donated a 2010 Jay Flight trailer to Make-A-wish, a charitable organization that grants wishes to children with life threatening illnesses, allowing a child with a brain tumour to fulfil her wish of trading in hospital treatments and appointments for a summer of fishing, swimming and roasting marshmallows over an open campfire, the Morinville News reported.

Julia, whose last name was not released by the organization, arrived with her family at RV City to find the trailer decorated with balloons and a sign bearing her name.

RV City owner Ross Hodgins said he was proud to be a part of what he felt was an amazing day. “We are honored to participate in making Julia’s wish come true,” he said. “We are thankful for the support of Jayco Inc., a family-owned, family-focused company who were instrumental in making Julia’s wish a reality.”

In addition to donating the trailer, RV City gathered together many of the essentials for the family’s camping trip, including a set of dishes, camping chairs and other camping supplies.

Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta is one of nine wish granting chapters across Canada with trained volunteers dedicated fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. To date, the organization has granted more than 4,000 wishes to Canadian children.
