Sunshine Early Learning Center has been apart of many events geared towards giving back to the community. Many ideas/events were thought of by Ms. Frances J. Rollins herself! Many of the nonprofit events were thought out ideas made to attack an imperative problem in the surrounding communities. The goal is to give families the necessary support so the children are in the best possible situation to succeed.
Annual Family Fun Day
Sunshine community fun day is a day dedicated to the community. It is a day anyone can come and enjoy themselves with great music, mini-games, and great cookout food. It is a day everyone in the community comes together and builds a bond with each other in order for the community to improve as a whole. Many families were able to meet each other and many people became lifelong friends because of this community fun day. This was a day established by Ms. Frances J. Rollins and we thank her till this day for creating such a great event for the community!
Annual Coat Drive
Sunshine Early Learning Center participates in a yearly coat drive. This drive is to ensure all children in the Sunshine Early Learning Center program have a coat during the winter. Some families are not able to buy one due to financial struggles. Here at Sunshine Early Learning Center, we want to take the extra mile to become that extra support to families in the surrounding community.
Annual Turkey Drive
Sunshine Early Learning Center participates in a yearly turkey drive. The annual turkey drive is to help ensure every family that has a child enrolled in the Sunshine Early Learning Center program has a turkey for thanksgiving. We understand that some families do not have the financial means to buy a turkey for thanksgiving. Here at Sunshine Early Learning Center, we want to ensure that each family can participate in thanksgiving at the comfort of their homes.
Fresh Farmers Produce Drive
Sunshine Early Learning Center participates in a fresh farmer's drive. This drive is to ensure that each family in Sunshine Early Learning Center has fresh and healthy food. This includes fruits and vegetables that are healthy and grown from a local farm. Many families are not able to retrieve healthy produce foods from a farm due to the location. Here at Sunshine Early Learning Center, we want to bridge that gap between fresh foods and families in the surrounding communities.
Colgate Dental Van
Sunshine Early Learning Center has partnered with Colgate to bring a dental van to the center. This van allows children to receive proper dental care and resources. This includes floss, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. The Colgate dental van also educates the children the proper way to brush their teeth and floss. The van also talks about how important dental care is.
