WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Wishes sometimes do come true for deserving children.
Five year old Darren McQuade suffers from muscular dystrophy, and in a few years may be confined to a wheelchair. He has always wanted a dinosaur themed playhouse.
An artist and a team of Westfield firefighters completed the work that the Make-a-Wish foundation had begun.
Westfield firefighter Joseph Coach told 22News, “I got a bunch of guys together and we came down and we finished the inside. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
The playhouse was completed as a result of the Westfield firefighter’s efforts. They volunteered many of their off-duty hours during the more than a weeklong project.
Darren and his dad Steven intend to spend many hours in this special playhouse.
Sunday’s event helped serve as a magnet for neighborhood togetherness.
