WASHINGTON DC (March 9, 2020) Prepared floor remarks by Senator Charles "Chuck" Grassley:
Last Saturday marked an incredible milestone for Make-a-Wish Iowa.
At their event in Dubuque, this organization granted its 4,000th wish to Michael, aged 15, from Oelwein. He received a trailer for transporting show cattle.
This is an amazing achievement for Make-a-Wish, which is dedicated to bringing joy to the critically ill children of Iowa.
The wishes they grant make such an impact to the lives of these children.
I congratulate Make-a-Wish Iowa and their many volunteers for their accomplishments.
I know that they will continue to spread joy, kindness and compassion for years to come.
