Part of what makes the Sunshine Terrace Foundation unique is the opportunity to have hundreds of volunteers who donate precious time to come visit with our residents and improve their quality of life. Sunshine Terrace Foundation had more than 52,000 volunteer hours of donated service in 2013 and has received many awards for the wonderful volunteer time donated. Come join other volunteers who have won the UALA Hero Award for their love, compassion, commitment and dedication to the senior population!

Volunteers needed in these areas:
Adopt a Grandparent Program
Looking for a service opportunity? Adopt a grandparent is a fun program established to allow community members a volunteer opportunity to mingle on a regular basis with the residents of the Sunshine Terrace Community. Some of the benefits include but are not limited to: a great feeling of satisfaction knowing you are helping form a needed bond with someone from your community, an excellent resume builder, added friendships and so much more!
Assist with an Activity
Every day the Recreation Therapy department provides therapeutic activities for the residents and can almost always use assistance in these! Check out our monthly Recreation Therapy calendar at http://www.sunshineterrace.net/sunshine-skilled-nursing-rehabilitation. We ask that volunteers come at least 30 minutes prior to any activity to help gather residents. You must be a registered volunteer to assist with activities.
Do a Practicum/Internship with us
Does your major require you to have Practicum or Internship Experience? Come do it with us! Please contact Terry Bitton, Recreation Therapy Director directly at Terry.Bitton@sunshineterrace.com for application forms and to set up an interview.
Plan and Implement Your Own Activity
Are you part of a unique club, group or organization? Do you have a talent or hobby you would like to share with our residents? We are always looking for community volunteers who are willing to share their talents and abilities with our wonderful residents.
