  For many kids, the holidays are challenging. There are students at our school whose holiday season is not as bright as others. ”Winter wishes is a way for students at Kamiakin to give back to other students that they see are in need or sometimes wish for themselves, it is just an awesome opportunity to help out your fellow Kamiakin Braves,” said sophomore and ASB member Macy Meads.  

  Winter Wishes has been a tradition at our school for many year and ASB has tried to do its best by granting as many wishes as possible, with the help of our staff at Kamiakin and businesses throughout the Tri-Cities. This year some of the wishes granted were lots of blankets, fidget spinners, soda pop, fishing poles, and many food items. Freshman Braden Swaney, said “I gave a wish to my friend, because they were in need of an everyday item that wouldn’t cost to much to grant”

  ASB prepares for Winter Wishes by going out to businesses and asking them to donate money so ASB can go out and by the gifts. ”There is a lot of preparations that go into making winter wishes happen, our ASB officers do a great job, they have to send out the wishes, organize them, and keep track of the ongoing list.”  said librarian Linda Nobbs “There have been some students coming in, i’ve seen more coming in from a few different classes.”

  Mrs. Nobbs said that when she first started working here, they would choose 10 needy families in our district and buy gifts for them, but now she is glad it’s more geared to our students at our school and what  they need.
