Shorewood HUGS has granted more than 45 wished in the past two years. Most recently, a Minooka woman was chosen to have a wish granted.
Karen Conroy wrote to HUGS asking for help because she had fallen on hard times. What she was asking for was some necessary car repairs. She met with a representative of HUGS at Pep Boys in Joliet and Shorewood HUGS took care of the cost of those repairs.
