sunshine cottageThe Sunshine Foundation Dream Village has openings for volunteers in various areas of service, including groundskeepers, handyman services, airport greeters, and more. The Sunshine Foundation is the nation’s oldest wish-granting organization. Since 1976, the Sunshine Foundation has answered the dreams of over 37,000 children living with life-long chronic illnesses, physical challenges, or the trauma of abuse.
The Sunshine Foundation Dream Village is a 22-acre resort located just minutes from Walt Disney World. It features nine themed cottages specially equipped to handle the needs of the children visiting on dream trips to the Central Florida theme parks. The Dream Village has a zero-entry access pool, a putt-putt course, and an accessible playground with a wheelchair swing.
The Sunshine Foundation is able to provide dream trips through the generous support and donations of its volunteers, allowing families who are already strapped with medical bills and care costs to enjoy a brief respite without the additional financial burden a vacation can cause. It remains one of the nation’s top-rated wish-granting charities serving the terminally ill or chronically ill.
