Volunteer Spotlight: Trevor Day School

Kids for Kids, Project Sunshine´s youth service program, collaborates with schools and other youth-based community organizations to teach young people the importance of volunteering and provide them with the opportunity to give back in a meaningful way. Children and teens participate in Sending Sunshine projects to assemble Craft Kit packages, sew Surgi Dolls and decorate Sunny Gram cards that are sent to children facing medical challenges all over the country.

Every January, students at Trevor Day School in New York City volunteer with Project Sunshine during their Day of Service. This year, over 70 seventh grade students made 400 hundred Craft Kits for children facing medical challenges!

Meghan Amorosa, a Senior Intern at Project Sunshine, speaks about her experience leading the Kids for Kids program at Trevor Day School. "The seventh graders were not only passionate about public service but also enthusiastic about making an impact on children their own age. The event was a success, with the students making hundreds of Craft kits and Sunny Gram cards. These were sent out to five medical facilities across the country, bringing sunshine to hundreds of children."

Project Sunshine enjoys giving youth volunteers the opportunity to support our hospital programs all around the country. If you are interested in learning more, visit our Kids for Kids page.
