We do everything from holiday parties to softball tournaments with our children. There is no fee for families to participate in our chapter of Project Sunshine. Our chapter caters to the families by taking on the financial responsibility of the events. Project Sunshine provides a wide variety of supplies to our families ranging from sports equipment to refreshments. The money we receive from fundraising allows us to continue to remain a free organization for families. Fundraising Project Sunshine could not function with out its volunteers 77 total members, 75 members and a president and vice president. Written in our constitution is the number of members we are allowed to have. That number has been decided on based on the number of families we serve. Some of our programs inclue Scare on the Square, Fall Festival, Homecoming Parade, Special Needs Rodeo, PS I love you, Bowling , and Movie Night Thank you!! Project Sunshine is designed to give children with disabilities the chance to feel free, despite their limitations. However, here in Huntsville we have done more than that. We serve as a community. Families can come together and share their experiences with people who understand. Authority Mission Statement Our chapter fulfills our mission statement with our Buddy Program, Recreational activities, and our special events. We are apart of a national program and have to adhere to Project Sunshine’s rules and guidelines. Once a month we send a report to nationals about our events that month and our financial standing. Our chapter has created a constitution that outlines everything from the number of members we can have to the duties of officers.
The constitution also states the volunteer requirements of each member. Members are required to attend at least 50% of all activities, and officers are required to attend 75% of all activities. Governace The SHSU chapter of Project Sunshine has three advisors that oversee the operations. Our advisors are very active and participate in all of our activities.

Together with the advisors, the President and Vice President pick officers. •Dues every semester •Campus Development •Fundraisers •Money from nationals
