Volunteers are Essential to Lighting the Way

Volunteers like you are crucial in supporting Sunbeam’s mission. Last fiscal year alone, 706 volunteers donated 2,118 hours of services, saving Sunbeam more than $52,000 in labor costs.  This is crucial to keeping Sunbeam’s admin and fundraising costs below 10 percent – so we can help more of our central Oklahoma neighbors.

You can be a Light to Children, Families and Seniors
