Celebrating 51 Years!

Our great days are merry and bright at Sunshine Village! We kept shining and spreading good cheer throughout the holidays to our friends and community.

We brought our handmade holiday decorations to The Wellington and artwork to The Soldiers Home . We've also been busy making ornaments for our Christmas trees, baking cookies, and dancing and caroling with our friends. We even had a visit from Santa and his pal, "Santapaws" aka Sophie Vanilla Cookie, during pet therapy!

We are so lucky to have wonderful supporters like you to help make dreams come true with donations to our Holiday Appeal or by choosing us while shopping for gifts on AmazonSmile . We look forward to making more memories in 2019! Thank you for your support of our great days - all year long. Happy New Year to all!

Have a great day and a great year!
