Sunshine Foundation

Celebrating our Volunteers

Volunteers are vital to The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. In chapters from coast to coast, approximately 500 volunteers form the very heart of our organization. They give their time and skills, not for personal gain or praise, but to make a difference in the world and to bring a little sunshine into the lives of young Sunshine Dreamers.

We celebrate our volunteers throughout the year and honour their service and commitment through the Wayne C. Dunn Spirit of Service Award and Bill White Memorial Sunshine Foundation Student Volunteer Award.  Additional stories are also shared in our news page.
