Make-A-Wish North Texas is thrilled to honor Meagan Prewitt as our volunteer of the month. Meagan and her husband met at the University of North Texas fifteen years ago and they have been married for twelve years. They have two beautiful daughters, Preslie (6) and Blakely (3). Meagan is a Texas Native, born and raised in the DFW Area! Before having children, she taught 7th grade English, and now she stays at home with her girls. In her spare time, Meagan serves in her church's youth ministry and writes for the Fort Worth Moms Blog.
How long have you been involved with Make-A-Wish and how did you first get started?
I was introduced to Make-A-Wish about six years ago when my best friend and fellow wish granter, Paige Kelly, encouraged me to volunteer. We started granting wishes together in the fall of 2015.
Tell me about your favorite volunteer experience.
One of my favorite volunteer experiences was planning Parker’s Star Wars wish reveal. He has such positive energy and can fill a room with joy in a matter of seconds, so to be the ones who helped to fill HIS life with joy was an amazing experience.
What tips or advice do you have for others not sure about getting involved?
Find someone that shares your passion, take the online training course, and embark on this journey together, bringing hope, strength, and joy to the hearts of kids in our area.
