Mt. Olive Pickle Company announces a new 2020 partnership with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation. We are honored to help Make-A-Wish® fulfill its mission of creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We chose to support Make-A-Wish® because through its wish-granting, children are given a sense of anticipation for something positive and empowering in their lives.
These special moments of joy make a real difference. In fact, a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a serious illness. It’s an experience that can help them live with, or even overcome, their illnesses. Together, Make-A-Wish® and Mt. Olive Pickle Company are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life.
The support of our loyal consumers directly impacts making dreams come true for children through the Make-A-Wish® Foundation. Consumer purchases help us spread joy to children and transform lives, one wish at a time. We believe every child battling a critical illness should experience the hope and delight of a wish fulfilled, an experience designed to bring a smile and sweet memories.
