Community Volunteers Deliver Critical Support to Children
Project Sunshine volunteers deliver play and activities to children in need of socialization and human connection to help them cope while they are dealing with medical challenges. Play allows children to learn, explore, and it enables them to heal. (According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, play is one of the most effective methods of reducing stress in kids!)

New Volunteer Opportunities during the Pandemic
In March 2020 our in-person volunteer activities were halted. But we were committed to deliver our mission, so we piloted and launched a new program: TelePlay. TelePlay connects small groups of children with trained volunteers over a HIPAA-compliant Zoom platform where they play games and activities designed by behavioral health professionals.

About Community Volunteers
Through volunteering, individuals provide critical support to pediatric patients and their families, give back to the communities where they live and work, broaden their personal networks, and connect with other compassionate volunteers.

Community volunteers belong to local chapters. Community chapters are comprised of passionate individuals, 18 years and older, who are interested in community service and dedicated to Project Sunshine’s mission.
