Community Involvement

Sunshine Academy takes great pride in being an active part of our community.  Whether it is through direct cash donations, time and resources or other support, we are compassionate about our causes.

Brookline Food Pantry Donations

Each year for the past eight years, we have organized a spring fundraiser on behalf of the Brookline Food Pantry to help sustain them in their lean months between the December holiday season and the May postal carrier food collection drive.  Sunshine Academy matches dollar-for-dollar any amount our parents donate to the Brookline Food Pantry during the fundraiser. In 2018, Sunshine Academy families raised more than $6,631 for the pantry, which we matched to make a total donation of $13,262, making our community the largest single fundraising source for the Brookline Food Pantry.  Please consider helping support this commendable organization.

Clothing and Gear Swap

The Parent Advisory Boards have hosted “Clothing and Gear Swaps” to exchange and donate clothing to other Sunshine Academy parents. If there are donations remaining after the swap, or additional items people wish to give, the clothing and toys are donated to local organizations, such as Cradles to Crayons in Boston.

Supporting Education

We directly support the Public Schools of Brookline through direct sponsorship of fundraising drives for school supplies, equipment and other support.  Sunshine Academy supports the Driscoll School auction, the Devotion School carnivale and other events.
