Utah-based Fox Pest Control contributed to Make-A-Wish Utah’s Drive for Wishes to help reach the goal of granting more than 40 wishes to children this fall.
The company granted the wishes of two girls with debilitating illnesses — Lennon, 5, and Eliza, 4 — to go to Disney World and meet the princesses.
The girls learned that their wishes were granted during an event at Herm’s Inn, a restaurant in Logan, Utah. They were carried to the event in a horse-drawn carriage, escorted by two handsome princes, and met several Disney princesses. They learned to curtsy, speak like royalty and wave a magic wand.
“Watching those little girls smile from ear to ear was truly a heartwarming experience,” says Kezia Whitteker, marketing director at Fox Pest Control. “We have been so blessed to be a part of something that gives children a respite from their struggles.”
The girls will make the trip to Disney World in the next couple of months.
This is Fox Pest Control’s second year working with Make-A-Wish Foundation. Last year, the company sponsored a boy who wanted to be a DJ and supplied him DJ equipment. The company says it plans to continue granting wishes each year.
“At Fox we aim to give back wherever we can within the community. When we are able to make an impact for the better in someone’s life, that’s when we are truly accomplishing our goals as a company,” says Bryant White, co-founder of Fox Pest Control. “We strive to help people in various situations. Our hearts especially go out to those battling life-changing illnesses or disabilities. We see the members of our community as a part of our family, and we strive each day to foster positive relationships with them as we continue to conduct our business the Fox Way.”
