Welcome to our resources page!

Here you can find helpful tips and information about engaging with Sunshine (or other non-profits) as a volunteer, supporter, or ministry partner. We hope you find these resources useful.

Volunteering

We have several program areas that are facilitated by full or part-time staff and supported through consistent volunteers. Listed below are our current volunteer opportunities.

Partnering

Sunshine sees strategic collaboration as a crucial component in producing meaningful outcomes for high impact. We partner with local institutions, churches, and other community organizations to promote engagement in a wide variety of ways. Several of our partners are listed below.

Giving

There are many ways to give. While we greatly appreciate financial support, it can be just as powerful to give through time or talent. We encourage interested individuals to talk with us in further detail. We believe it’s important for each person to think and plan carefully about how and why they choose to give. This ultimately leads to deeper relationships and more meaningful engagement. (To find about more about in-kind or other forms of donation, please visit our Giving page).

Secondly, we also are looking for further field trip opportunities, specifically to places of employment in interesting industries. (For example, touring a recording studio and learning about the music business; visiting an architectural firm and learning how buildings are designed; touring a metal fabrication plant and learning how car mufflers are made, etc…)
