30 Jan 2017 Conway Corp employees grant wish to local teen
Conway Corp employees hosted a reveal for a wish granted by company employees through the Make-a-Wish Foundation and surprised 18-year-old Zack with a completely restored and customized 1989 Toyota Supra Turbo.
Zack purchased the vehicle last year after searching for the exact make and model that he wanted. He found it in Idaho and he and his father went there and drove it back to Arkansas.
Make-A-Wish worked with Rusher’s Collision & Customizing Center in Vilonia to make Zack’s wish come true of restoring and customizing his car.
Conway Corp employees greeted Zack’s family at the Conway Corp service center where the car was hidden behind a large Conway Corp truck that was rolled away, revealing the customized car.
Conway Corp employees have granted eight wishes and donated more than $41,000 to benefit Make-a-Wish Mid-South since 2011.
“Our employees are some of the finest people you will find anywhere. They not only care about our customers, but about the community we all share,” said Conway Corp CEO Richard Arnold. “I am proud to be a part of our great community and very proud to work with such a generous group of people.”
According to a study conducted by Make-A-Wish America, 95 percent or more of volunteers and wish parents agreed that a wish experience contributes to improvements in wish children’s mental and emotional health by producing a positive outlook characterized by hope, joy and happiness.
“Conway Corp is a local company, making a difference in the life of a child in their own community,” said Patrick Presley, Make-a-Wish Mid-South Regional Manager. “Zack had a great day and will drive many memorable miles all because of the generosity of Conway Corp’s employees.”
