DHL Employees Raise More Than $12,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation in Cincinnati Region

DHL partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill the wishes of two Cincinnati area children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. DHL employees who work at the DHL facility at Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky Airport raised more than $12,000 for Wish Child Sierra (an eight-year old with sickle cell) and Wish Child Daniel (an 11-year-old with the rare Desmoid tumors).

The fundraising effort was part of DHL's Family Day, now in its second year, an employee appreciation event packed with family-friendly activities, including barbecuing, DHL cargo plane tours, and visits from Cincinnati Zoo animals as well as the mascots and cars from the Kentucky Speedway.

"Each year our chapter grants wishes to more than 800 children in the tri-state area thanks to donors such as DHL and a network of more than 1,200 volunteers," said Susan McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
