Sunshine Acres Children’s Home Furniture and More, 3003 W. Apache Trail No. 100 in Apache Junction, is hosting a community outreach event 8 a.m.-1 p.m. May 7.
“Check out some local businesses and nonprofit vendors as well as various food trucks and pet adoption groups while you shop, plus learn more about the mission of Sunshine Acres Children’s Home and how you can help support children in need,” Mya Klee, store manager, said in a release.
Sunshine Acres Children’s Home, 3405 N. Higley Road in Mesa, provides a loving, wholesome, Christian home for children who are separated from their parents and helps them establish long-term relationships with stable parental figures, preparing them for success in adult life, the release states.
The children placed at Sunshine Acres come from various situations where their parents may be suffering from homelessness, incarceration, illness, financial instability, etc. These children are given a stable home and house parents to care for them with the idea of giving these children the chance at a better life.
There are seven homes with housing for up to 70 children at any given time, and there are various programs available for the children to get involved such as choir, 4H, horse show team, flag football and more.
Sunshine Acres does not take any state or federal funding for the care of the children but relies on donations from the surrounding community. Learn more at sunshineacres.org.
