It's an annual labor of love for 1077 'GNA as we kick off another year of the Northeast New York Make A Wish Foundation's "Adopt An Angel Program."

While you are out doing your holiday shopping you can "Adopt An Angel" and help their wish come through. These children are suffering from life threatening illnesses and they are all in the 518 area code, so your dollars are going to work at home.

Angels are available for a $3 donation at Aviation Mall, Colonie Center, Crossgates Mall, Rotterdam Square, Wilton Mall and every branch of First Niagara Bank.  Angels are also available at many local schools and businesses.  They may also be ordered by mail or phone at 782-4673 for $3.75 each (includes shipping and handling) through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeast New York office.  To make an on-line contribution, please visit them at

Here is the background of one of the Angels you can adopt.

Stephanie is a beautiful 10 year old girl from Wynantskill and she has a wish that rings very popular for all children.  She wants to go to Walt Disney World in Orlando.  If you "Adopt her Angel" at the many locations listed above for just $3 you will bring her that much closer to making it happen. Please be generous and have a great holiday season.
