Community chapters are comprised of passionate individuals 18 years and older who are interested in community service and dedicated to Project Sunshine’s mission.
Volunteers deliver two types of programs. The first program called TelePlay, is when small groups of patients and trained volunteers meet by video conference to engage in play and activities. The second program occurs in the medical facilities where volunteers facilitate creative arts and crafts with patients and their families.
Through volunteering, individuals have the opportunity to give back to the communities where they live and work, broaden their personal networks, and connect with other compassionate volunteers.
Our community volunteers are a diverse group – all ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, and professions. From business executives to stay-at-home parents, from retirees to young professionals, our volunteers are united by their dedication to brightening the stays of hospitalized children and their families.
