Sam's Wish!

Help grant a Wish

Wish Kid, Sam, has Wished to give back to healthcare workers like the ones who have been taking care of him during treatment!


Sam wants to create what we are calling Sam’s Wish Kits, which will include items to help those on the front lines disinfect themselves after shifts to put them more at ease when returning home to their families as well as provide some necessities that they may have trouble getting access to, like antibacterial soap. We are hoping to make at least 100 kits to start.

Items we need:

  • Restaurant Gift Cards
  • Grocery Store Gift Cards
  • Bleach (to create a cleaning solution to disinfect their shoes)
  • Removable/Washable Seat Covers
  • Spray Bottle (with measurements)
  • Aluminum Foil Tray
  • Gloves (100 pair box-latex free)
  • Washable Bags (Learn how to make them HERE)
  • Laundry Detergent (90+ loads)
  • Shoe Covers (50 pair box)
  • Antibacterial Soap (1 gallon)
  • Lotion (30 oz.)
  • Clorox Wipes (75 ct.)
  • Hand Sanitizer (30 oz.)
  • Headbands with buttons (Learn how to make them HERE)
  • Ribbons with buttons (Learn how to make them HERE)

Our goal is to be able to grant Sam’s Wish as soon as possible, based on our ability to fill 100 boxes. We want to have all donations in by Thursday, April 23.

If you would like to ship items, please send them to the following address:

Sam’s Wish
10309 Paseo del Norte NW
Albuquerque, NM, 87114

If you would like to send an e-gift card for a restaurant/grocery story or to purchase supplies, please send it to:  [email protected]

We will have four collection sites, open at various times. You can drop off any items that you would like to donate at the sites listed below. The sites will be manned by no more than two people, who will maintain a 6-foot distance, as well as wear a mask and gloves during collection. We ask that you put your items in your trunk, so that staff can easily collect items without any skin-to-skin interaction.
