Local Boy Needs Help Writing Letters To Santa For A Great Cause
Luke Hoag, a student in Hoosick Falls Central School District is once again looking to pay it forward and raise money for Make -A -Wish. He needs our help!
When I saw this story, I knew we needed to help Luke. As a baby Luke Hoag was diagnosed with a brain tumor. As he traveled for treatment to and from Boston, his family was granted a Make-A-Wish trip. Luke choose Disney World. The trip he said changed his life and now he wants to pay it forward and make sure other kids going through what he went through can get their wish.
Luke is taking part in Macy’s “Believe Day,” a program that will donate $2 to Make-A-Wish for every letter to Santa delivered. Luke has until December 9th to collect his letters. He has a goal of 25,000 to raise $50,000. Last year Luke was able to raise $15,000. To hear more about Luke’s story, watch this video:
