One is to serve their caffeinated elixir to their customers at the North Carolina State Farmers Market. After all, nothing beats a delicious, eye-opening latte or cappuccino while you’re picking out some fresh fruits and vegetables on a Saturday morning, planning the evening meal.
Needing to stay in the hospital can be scary and stressful for pediatric patients and their families. Project Sunshine aims to minimize those feelings by providing opportunities for play through volunteer-led programming that promotes creative expression, socialization, and learning.
