Wright State University (WSU) miracle makers brought food and a sense of coziness with their annual grilled cheese hotline on November 30.

The Grilled Cheese Hotline has been an event hosted by Miracle Makers since 2017. Held during the week leading up to the Finals, it serves the dual purpose of bringing comfort food to WSU students and raising funds for the children of Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Danielle Dargan, freshman and production president of Miracle Makers, was thrilled for her first experience of the event.

“It was super fun. Lots of people helped me and I had friends who helped me. And I liked that if you need a little snack or a quick meal, we’ve got you, ”Dargan said.

Dargan, like the other members of Miracle Maker, worked on assembling grilled cheese sandwiches, delivering them, and making TikToks to promote the event.

Members of Miracle Makers sell grilled cheese sandwiches for $ 1 and tomato soup for 50 cents to students on campus.

The money raised goes directly to Dayton Children’s.

“Dayton Children’s goes the extra mile to make sure babies and young children are healthy and happy. Children are eager to access life-saving care. They need it now, and our organization makes it possible, ”said Abby Adams, management major and president of Miracle Makers, citing the organization’s slogan“ Kids Can’t Wait ”.

History and impact

The slogan “kids can’t wait” is a big part of why the grilled cheese helpline is important.

“It is important to give back because for children who have illnesses, they cannot wait for this treatment or care. Grilled Cheese Hotline might be a small event, but it helps a lot and can have a big impact as well, ”said Dargan.

This year, Miracle Makers was able to give back to Dayton Children’s with a donation of over $ 850, a hundred dollars more than its original goal.

They were also able to give back to the WSU community, delivering over 150 orders of grilled cheese and tomato soup.

“Finals week is always very stressful and it was nice not to worry about cooking food,” said college student Teresa Paul.

Miracle Makers will have its next event, Raiderthon, on April 9. Raiderthon is a 12 hour dance marathon with music, games, food and tours from Dayton Children’s Miracle Kids. Students can register at Raiderthon.
