How Can You Help?

With Your Time

"Wish I May" is a volunteer run organization by people in our community striving to make a difference one child and one birthday at a time. With no paid staff we are always in need of enthusiastic people who want to jump in and donate time to pull together all the trappings of a birthday, or are willing to make a toy run when companies have a toy drive.

With Your Gifts

We need toys!!! We need party goods!!! And we need your help in getting the word out to your co-workers, family and friends. Serving children age 1 -13 we can use any age group toy, gift cards, and everything you would want to throw your own party or a party for a child you love.

You don't even have to clean the kitchen and decorate... we just add the toys to the shelves and you are a birthday hero!!!
  • Have a toy drive at your company with toys instead of cash for dress down days or at the annual company potluck!

  • Ask your customers to help "Wish I May" with a toy drive or a cake mix drive and we'll provide the thank you notes to everyone who helps!!
