“Founded in 1996, Little Kids Rock (LKR) believes that all children in our public schools deserve music education. LKR knows that music is a critical component of a first-rate education. We inspire children to express themselves through music, building the creativity, confidence, and self-esteem that are critical to success in school and beyond. We accomplish this by: pioneering innovative teaching methods that are rooted in children’s knowledge of popular music forms such as rock, rap, blues, hip-hop etc; preparing practitioners such as teachers and youth workers to offer classes utilizing our methods and materials; and providing free musical instruments and trained instructors to children, especially to those children who do not receive music education.”

Since receiving its charter in 1986, Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley has granted the wishes of more than 2,300 children in the Hudson Valley region with life-threatening medical conditions.

Our first office was located in Mt. Kisco, NY over Danny’s Cheese Shop. In 2001, we moved to the Wish House in Tarrytown, NY.

Serving the eight counties of Delaware, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester, the Chapter’s mission is to ensure that every child residing in the Hudson Valley who qualifies for Make-A-Wish services is granted his or her fondest wish. While wishes are referred and completed on an ongoing basis, an average of 110 wishes are in progress at any given time.

A volunteer Board of Directors and staff of seven, together with volunteers, donors and medical professionals from throughout the region, make wish granting possible. Among the Hudson Valley Chapter’s recently completed wishes are: a room redecoration; meeting One Direction; going to the Super Bowl; traveling to Hawaii; a trip to Disney World and being a model for a day.

Make-A-Wish® America provides the Hudson Valley Chapter with technical assistance, training, national coordination and support; however, all funds required to grant wishes are raised entirely within the Hudson Valley.

“President Franklin Roosevelt established the March of Dimes in 1938. March of Dimes has saved the lives of millions of babies since our founding. And we won’t stop until we reach the day when every baby is born healthy. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies’ lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, and low birthweight.”
