NIXA, Mo. -- A Springfield non-profit organization that gives happy birthdays to under privileged kids is expanding.

"Wish I May" will now be giving celebrations to kids in Christian County.

The volunteer-run organization opened its new doors at 809 N. Main in Nixa Thursday.

They provide gifts and toys for children whose families are experiencing extreme financial difficulties and are not able to give even the smallest birthday celebration.

"Wish I May" has provided more than 1,200 birthday bags to deserving children since they started.

The non-profit accepts gifts of new toys for children ages 1-15, party paper goods, gift bags and cash to provide dozens of birthday bags each month, according to a news release.
