20 Jun 2016 Conway Corp grants wish
Conway Corp employees hosted a reveal for a wish granted by company employees through the Make-a-Wish Foundation and surprised 15-year-old Keegan and his family with a trip to Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas.
Keegan loves water parks and has seen the world famous giant water slides at Atlantis. He also hopes to deep sea fish and swim with dolphins while he and his family are there.
Conway Corp employees greeted Keegan’s family at the Conway Corp business offices that were decorated with palm trees, beach balls and tropical fish announcing that his wish had been granted.
Conway Corp employees have granted seven 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 Amy Westlake, Arkansas Development Coordinator for Make-A-Wish Mid-South. “Keegan had a great day and will have a memorable trip, all because of the generosity of Conway Corp’s employees.”
