Volunteer Appreciation Month at Children’s Mercy

The Good Cheer Volunteers are being applauded by Children’s Mercy during this year’s Volunteer Appreciation Month. These rays of sunshine help make the days brighter for clients and their family members and caregivers. In addition to assisting with parent programs, they help clients enjoy experiences similar to camp activities, such as crafts, games, and special events.
