Rocky Point Middle School sixth-grader Frankie Anzaldi spearheaded a holiday letter writing campaign near and dear to his heart this winter, as he helped to donate more than 2,000 letters to the 2015 Macy’s Make-A-Wish Believe Campaign. 

A regular contributor to a variety of causes, Frankie selected this initiative as he had a wish granted by the foundation two years ago. Throughout his charitable campaign, he encouraged students throughout the district, as well as staff and community members, to pen holiday letters, as Macy’s department stores once again pledged to donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for each letter received.

In addition to the letters, Frankie also helped to sell approximately $200 in ornaments for the cause.

Make-A-Wish is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to grant the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. According to the organization, it helps to realize this goal approximately every 37 minutes.
