Stony Brook University’s Project Sunshine Chapter received more than 500 children’s DVDs from generous donors around the campus.
The DVDs were collected at campus dining locations throughout the month of November and given out to patients at Stony Brook Children’s hospital during the holidays.
Project Sunshine at Stony Brook University
An international organization, Project Sunshine empowers a dynamic and dedicated corps of over 10,000 volunteers to bring programming – recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) – to over 60,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 100 major cities across the United States and in five international satellite sites: Canada, China, Israel, Kenya and Puerto Rico.
The Stony Brook University Chapter works in close collaboration with the Child-Life Department at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. Volunteers selflessly donate their time to create program materials and deliver programs.
The DVD drive was a collaboration between Project Sunshine and the Faculty Student Association (FSA). In addition to this effort, the collaboration’s projects throughout the year included making craft kits at the Sending Sunshine event and a Toy Drive to brighten the life of a child in need during the holiday season.
