During these first months of 2021 – with the COVID-19 Pandemic still disrupting the services that the agency is able to provide – you can help Sunshine Village and the people are we so fortunate to serve with a financial contribution that will be used to help offset the increased costs that the agency continues to face. Your donation is greatly appreciated!
YOU CAN HELP SUNSHINE VILLAGE SHINE TODAY…AND TOMORROW!
With the onset of the Emergency Closure due to COVID-19 in March, Sunshine Village developed an interactive and engaging VIRTUAL AND REMOTE SERVICES (VARS) plan that included a diverse number of activities focusing on wellness, personal growth and professional development that included: small group communication sessions through Zoom; fun videos featuring staff members available through the agency’s website; Great Days Activity Packets provided weekly to people through the agency’s website and through the US Mail; Food and Food Packages and Great Day Activities Bags delivered directly to peoples’ homes; monthly personalized greeting cards to stay connected; Great Outdoors Program featuring Drive In Bingo, CAR-A-Oke, Friday Fun Days and CBDS Adventure Camp; weekly telephonic services from the agency’s nursing, therapeutic and case management personnel; communication through private Facebook pages and services provided not only during the day, but also in the evening and on weekends.
Sunshine Village began reopening its programs in early August and is currently operating 6 programs. Capacity within all buildings has been diminished drastically with the strict adherence to mandates, including 113 square feet for each person (clients and employees.) The agency created and implemented a comprehensive COVID-19 CONTROL PLAN to insure the highest levels of safety during the reopening process and operations during the pandemic.
In July and August, the organization laid off a total of 157 employees and closed its integrated fulfillment business, VillageWorks. It is hoped that with lessening restrictions and growth, Sunshine Village will be able to welcome its caring, compassionate professionals back some day.
Everyone at the organization is working incredibly hard to insure that Sunshine Village is here long after the pandemic – and continue in our founders’ dream of a place where everyone SHINES.
Your support is greatly appreciated – and any contribution that you can gift to Sunshine Village will help us continue to deliver on the promise of a GREAT DAY!
EVERYONE AT SUNSHINE VILLAGE WISHES YOU A GREAT DAY!
Gina Kos, Executive Director
