Many kids helped by the Make-A-Wish Foundation wish to meet a celebrity or take a trip to Disneyland or Disney World, but one Fairmont girl’s wish was to simply have a camper that she and her family could enjoy and make memories with.

One Lewis County business was happy to help.

Mountaineer RV and Outdoor Center teamed with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make 10-year-old Evelyn Sanson’s dream a reality. Fulfilling her wish wasn’t easy, however, as pop-up style campers have recently been in short supply.

“Make-A-Wish contacted us a few months ago, and their wish recipient was looking for a specific camper, which was the pop-up, and we didn’t have any at the time,” Mountaineer RV owner Joe Starett said.

Determined to help, Starett was able to finally procure some.

“So when I got a load of three in, I contacted Make-A-Wish, with the options, and the family chose, and we went from there,” Starett said.
