Our Mission

Our Mission

"Wish I May" was established in Greene County by Lisa Slavens in 2011.  In 2014 it expanded into Christian County and in 2017 started serving the children of Taney County.
Wish I May works with community agencies and schools to determine children who will not be receiving anything for their birthday.  Once these families are identified a form is given to the parent/guardian to fill out about their child.  The form is then given to Wish I May where volunteers pack a birthday bag according to that child's specific interest, hobbies, favorite color, etc.  The bag is then given to the parents who can go home, bake the birthday cake and wrap the birthday presents from the bag.  Our goal at Wish I May is to make every parent/guardian their child's superhero!
