Headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina, serves all medically eligible children who reside in the 49 counties east of the Orange/Alamance county line. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and more than 350 volunteers across eastern North Carolina, grant a wish more than every other day, on average, across its region.
