Project Sunshine Director Beatrice Kernan

A Message From The Executive Director
"It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with Project Sunshine’s dedicated Board of Directors, talented staff, and inspiring volunteers. Together we will deepen and expand our impact - bringing 'sunshine' to children in need by restoring a sense of normalcy in cold hospital halls and eliciting from brave and generous-spirited pediatric patients joy, inner courage, and coping skills necessary to confront challenges ahead.”

Beatrice Kernan, Executive Director
