SUNSHINE SERVICE

At the head of Sunshine Service

is a man who’s dear to me.

His name’s a real tongue twister

so he’s known as “Mr. T”.

He came to this Sun City,

yes, came and saw a need.

He started Sunshine Service

to fill a void indeed.

 

Back in the early days, I hear,

his little bride named Fern

handled all the office chores,

not a penny did they earn.

 

Hospital bed needed?

Don’t go and get all nervous.

Just get on the telephone

and call Sunshine Service.

 

Crutches, canes, and walkers,

commodes and all that gear

is available to you now

and all throughout the year.

 

Got a call from the children?

The grandkids coming soon?

Rollaways, cribs and playpens

sure are a real boon.

 

Two hundred fifty thousand bucks *

is a lot of cash I fear.

That’s what rentals would have cost

Sun Citians last year!

 

But we are, oh so lucky

’cause we can use it free!

That’s why Sunshine Service

means so very much to me!

 

Catastrophic illness hits,

it’s surely nice to know

all that expensive equipment

won’t eat up all your dough!

 

Visit Sunshine Service,

see what’s available there.

When you talk to God tonight

include them in your prayer.

*the figure for 1977 was over $424,000.

Sunshine Service really great group

I’m a newcomer to Sun City and suffer from a neuro-muscular disease.

As anyone with a disability can attest, assistive equipment is expensive. I knew I would have to get a new wheelchair, scooter, walker and shower chair once we arrived. My old ones were worn out and most wouldn’t fit into the U-haul. I dreaded the bill and hoped to find used equipment once we hot here.

Imagine my surprise when I saw an ad for Sunshine Service in the Independent! I was skeptical. Surely there had to be a catch but I called anyway. “Come right over” they told me. I was shocked when I walked in the building. What a warm welcome and all sorts of equipment was now available to me – for free!

Jim Sinclair and the entire staff and volunteers are to be commended. Sun City has changed my life in so many ways but I have to say the Sunshine Service has literally made it possible for me to live again. I was almost completely homebound and now I have the world open to me again.

I want to thank Sunshine Service with all my heart. They have no idea what a blessing they are.
