Silver Wishes Inc. was created to let seniors living in Placer County know they matter and have a purpose.  By granting wishes, we want them to experience hope and let them know they are valued. Wishes may be something simple to help overcome a challenge or help regain their independence.  A wish may be bringing family together that has been separated.  Or joy may come in the form of granting the opportunity to experience a bucket list item.  Silver Wishes needs your help to make these wishes a reality.  In return, we hope our volunteers, donors and community will also experience the joy you receive from being a part of this mission.  Together we can make a difference.
