This May, Project Sunshine had a strong presence at the AARP Life@50+ National Expo thanks
to volunteers from UnitedHealth Group. UnitedHealth Group volunteers set up an interactive booth
where senior citizens attending the expo created Sunny Gram cards to send to local children´s
hospitals in South Florida. At the expo, held in honor of Older Americans Month, UnitedHealth
Group employees volunteered to improve the lives of senior citizens. The seniors had the
opportunity to make Sunny Grams, allowing them to share warm wishes with young patients
and feel connected to their community.
The volunteers were led by Marla Stock, a dedicated Project Sunshine Chapter Leader since
early 2014. As Chapter Leader, Marla leads a group of UnitedHealth Group employee volunteers
at Joe DiMaggio Children´s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. Marla explains her dedication to
Project Sunshine: "Who doesn´t love children? It´s all about the children in my book, and
there isn´t a better way to show how I care than volunteering my time with Project Sunshine!"
The Senior Citizen volunteers shared in Marla´s excitement and showed how they care, making over
500 Sunny Grams for Project Sunshine children in the Sunshine State!
