evolve Federal Credit Union and Make-A-Wish Foundation Grant Wish to El Paso Teen
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 6:15 AM

El Paso teenager Bobby Garcia watched his wish come true on Tuesday, with the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and evolve Federal Credit Union (El Paso).

Garcia, who was diagnosed in late 2011 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), wished for a personal shopping spree and a comfortable bed.

On Tuesday morning, the Target Store opened early to let Garcia enjoy a personal shopping spree. In addition to spending money provided by Make-a-Wish, Target donated an additional $240 for him to spend.

Among his purchases? Bedding for his new Tempur-Pedic bed, delivered to him by Popular Mattress.

Last year, evolve Federal Credit Union sponsored the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a $100,000 donation. This year, evolve has once again teamed up with the organization with a $50,000 sponsorship to help make the wishes of local children come true. A number of evolve employees also have become wish granters, enabling them to get to know the children whose wishes were granted through the credit union’s donation.
