Local non-profit selling shirts to buy meals for parents of patients at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta

ROSWELL, Ga. — One local non-profit organization is stepping up to help parents of children in the hospital.

Sunshine on a Ranney Day, a Roswell-based nonprofit that renovates homes for children with special needs, is partnering with CURE Childhood Cancer to sell “Here to Bring Sunshine” t-shirts, to help others during this pandemic.

The profits are providing meals to parents of children being treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, who can’t leave during the shelter-in-place order.

A portion of the proceeds from each T-shirt will pay for one meal for a parent of a child being treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

“The shirts spread sunshine and positivity,” said Holly Ranney, president of Sunshine on a Ranney Day. “We encourage people to buy a shirt and send it to their favorite first responder or someone working on the front lines right now.”

Because the meals are sourced from local restaurants, the campaign is also helping local restaurants stay in business.

People who buy a T-shirt are asked to post a picture of themselves wearing the shirt and use #SunshineAtHome to be featured on the Sunshine on a Ranney Day Facebook and Instagram pages.
