Giving Back with Project Sunshine

On Saturday, March 16th, 76 team members from third through tenth grade gathered at Fordham University for the annual Project Sunshine community service project. Joined by mentors and staff members, the CitySquashers made encouraging cards (SunnyGrams) and craft kits to send to children with medical challenges. Project Sunshine, a nonprofit, provides the materials to make the cards and kits, and facilitates their distribution. Students decorated the SunnyGrams with stickers, artwork, and silly jokes. The craft kits included hand-made journals (for the children to write in), crayons, stickers, and a personal note. This two-hour community service event was equal parts a fun and creative outlet for our team members as well as a lesson in compassion and helping others.
