SUNSHINE BOX PROJECT
Come and join us as we wrap and collect items to encourage and give hope to cancer survivors!
This Fighting Cancer, Inc. (FCI) project is where volunteers visit new chemotherapy patients at Atrium Health Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. On their first day of treatment, they receive a Sunshine Box. FCI's volunteers who deliver these boxes have had experience with cancer, either as a survivor or caregiver. This project enables us to encourage and hopefully provide some hope to the patients as mutual experiences are shared with them as well as questions they may have about what to expect are answered. FCI also delivers Sunshine Boxes via U.S. mail upon request.

Serenity, Courage and Wisdom, Inc. (SCAWINC) has partnered with FCI by hosting wrapping parties to assist with the demand for items so that they are able to be a blessing to more people. The demand has increased over the years that SCAWINC has been hosting wrapping parties, therefore, the desire to give more has also increased. SCAWINC now holds a wrapping party once a quarter and collects items for men and woman that are facing cancer.
There are a variety of items that are collected, however, here is a critical needs list:
Individually Wrapped Tea Bags
Soft Bristle Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Most items can be purchased at Dollar Tree. Please bring them unwrapped, thus the reason for the wrapping party. We separate items into categories and we need to be able to know what the items are, so FCI can easily bag the items for distribution.
When attending a wrapping party, we ask that you bring with you scissors, scotch tape, non-Christmas wrapping paper, and lots of wrapping spirit!
If you can't attend, but would like to contribute, donate $10 for one critical needs kit, or more if you feel a pulling on your heart. SCAWINC will then purchase and wrap the items for you. Please make your donation here:
