Make-A-Wish® Iowa Honors Iowa City Volunteer


January 28, 2015



Make-A-Wish® Iowa recently released the names of their annual award winners and Emily Mozena of Iowa City was recognized as the top volunteer in the Iowa City area.

Mozena has been a long-time volunteer with the Iowa City Committee. With her experience as a Child Life Specialist, she is makes an ideal wish granting volunteer.  She has also shared her love of Make-A-Wish with her Child Life students and has recruited several volunteers.  Her dedication to our wish families is unsurpassed.

“Emily’s passion is for our wish kids,” said Rachel Reams, Director of Operations. “Whenever we have a wish at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital that needs to be done quickly, we call Emily first. I’m proud to have her on our team.”

Mozena will be recognized at the organization’s Uncork A Wish event in Cedar Rapids on April 10th. Tickets are available by visiting or calling (515) 334-2636.

Make-A-Wish Iowa granted 153 wishes in their last fiscal year and anticipate granting 185 in our current year – that’s about a wish every other day.
