Pockets Full of Sunshine

June 28, 2023

Pockets Full of Sunshine was incorporated in 2015 and has been growing and thriving in the Lowcountry ever since.

The “Rays” (a moniker given to its participants, adults with disabilities) are out and about in the community engaging in a variety of activities and venues.  

Whether it’s crafting or screen printing in their warehouse, playing pickleball, miniature golf, dinners, shows or walking in the park, the program provides inclusive opportunities to connect with one another and the community at large.

By partnering with various business owners, organizations and events, Pockets Full of Sunshine takes advantage of all the Lowcountry has to offer.  

PFS was created out of need and inspired by waste material from an automotive label company that looks like a small yellow “sunshine.”

The “sunshines” are now upcycled by the Rays, who turn them into greeting cards, gift tags, magnets and much more.  

Screen printing is a fulfilling activity and provides an opportunity for Rays to sell their wares and participate at local markets. Every activity and endeavor is viewed as a teachable moment and element of fun.

PFS core values are centered around “doing the right thing” by being respectful, grateful, purposeful and embracing of everyone’s ability to make a difference in the world.

Working in a vacuum is not an option. PFS is reliant and extremely appreciative of all its partners, donors and volunteers who support and embrace the cause. It does take a village.
