Sunshine Village was the proud recipient of a $25,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts this past July. The Community Foundation partnered with the MA COVID-19 Relief Fund to distribute dollars locally and SSV was able to partner with them to provide additional GREAT DAY BAGS to the clients served who live with their families or on their own.
The GREAT DAYS BAGS were delivered thru the agency’s “Ring and Run’ program – but with the added component of a Wellness Check. The Bags were filled with health supplies and a gift card to a local grocery store. Resources on healthy eating, fitness and stress reduction were also included. Two masks were also included so that clients could practice wearing them – in anticipation of their return to services.
Over 270 bags were delivered and they were received with great levels of enthusiasm!
