Make-A-Wish, Winnebago Industries, and RV Retailer, LLC Team up to Grant Outdoor Wishes

April 18, 2022

RV Retailer is expanding our partnership with Make-A-Wish to provide the RVs for families with children that have critical illnesses. Over the years, RV Retailer has helped to deliver over 50 RVs to families through the Make-A-Wish program from our locations in Arizona, Ohio and South Carolina, among others. The partnership and inaugural program will fulfill requests for RV camping trips and enhance experiences for children with critical illnesses with support from Winnebago Industries.

Winnebago Industries initially will kick off the partnership with RV Retailer, LLC. Together with Make-A-Wish, RV industry leaders will help families make lasting memories outdoors. The partnership aims to grow, bringing additional RV dealers and industry colleagues together to meet the need.

“This partnership with Make-A-Wish and Winnebago Industries will help us fulfill our higher purpose of helping families spend time together, travel across America, experience the great outdoors, pursue their dreams and create lifetime memories. Our dealers have worked closely with Make-a-Wish chapters locally for years. We are thrilled to join the Winnebago Industries Foundation and Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for children and families who need it most,” says Jon Ferrando, President and CEO of RV Retailer. “There is nothing more fulfilling than helping these families. We are excited to see where this journey is going, and we look forward to giving back to the communities and people who need it most.”

Winnebago Industries Foundation, RV Retailer, LLC, and Make-A-Wish Foundation are excited to embark on this journey, as well as looking forward to a future of more opportunities and partnerships to fulfill children’s wishes.

“We welcome Winnebago Industries and RVR as a new partner of Make-A-Wish. Their support will enable us to continue to grant life-changing wishes that can be a turning point for a child with a critical illness, so much so that many wish parents credit the wish with helping their child get better,” said Richard K. Davis, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish America.
