Fort Wayne student featured in UPS 'Wishes Delivered' campaign

Haley Elementary student Sammie Vance will soon be all over social media as one of the faces of a national UPS campaign.

In 2017, Vance took the idea of Buddy Benches and started making them from bottle caps.

The Buddy Benches are a place where students can make friends and sit together if they're feeling lonely. 

UPS's 5th annual Wishes Delivered campaign is a global initiative that spreads goodwill and inspiration. 

Vance was contacted by the company and flew to Staten Island to film the commercial. 

 

For every video share and use of the hash tag 'wishes delivered', UPS will donate one dollar to one of three charities. 

Those include: The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The Salvation Army and Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
