In conjunction with the grand opening, Toys “R” Us helped Make-A-Wish grant the wish of Jacobi Dulaney, age 11, who had hoped to have the shopping experience of his dreams at a Toys “R” Us store.

In addition, Toys“R”Us stores across the country work with their local Make-A-Wish chapters throughout the year to host shopping spree wishes for very deserving children.
