A Project Sunshine volunteer works on crafts with the patients.

Volunteers from Project Sunshine recently visited patients through the Child Life program at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to provide a fun and creative afternoon for patients by having a craft party and teaching them arts and crafts, including how to make paper flowers for the upcoming Spring season.
 
Project Sunshine is a nonprofit organization that provides free, educational, recreational, and social programs to children and families living with medical challenges.
