MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - Oct. 4, 2022 - PRLog -- In an Award ceremony at Austin Gallery in Toronto last week, Sending Sunshine was presented with a June Callwood Outstanding Achievement Award for Voluntarism.  The Ministry of Citizenship and Multiculturalism recognized 20 individuals and groups for outstanding achievement and contributions to communities in Ontario.

"Volunteers are the heart and soul of Sending Sunshine", says Marissa Parker, Co-Founder and Executive Director at Sending Sunshine. Parker explains that handwriting cards and letters gives physical form to thoughts and emotions, and provides a more meaningful experience for seniors receiving them.

The volunteer-run corporation has experienced TRIPLE growth since 2020. Over 100,000 uplifting cards and letters to seniors at 600 care facilities and organizations, nationwide, have been delivered. Their goal is to help reduce the impact of social isolation and loneliness among the elderly in real and tangible ways. More than 10,000 volunteers and student groups in 22 countries, and in 3 languages have contributed to this remarkable achievement.

"This is a tremendous honour for the entire team at Sending Sunshine", says Parker.  "We're thrilled and incredibly grateful for this recognition."
