Atlanta nonprofit Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD) renovates homes for children who need wheelchair-accessible bathrooms, dream bedrooms and functional therapy rooms to improve their independence and development. With over 17,000 kids already impacted by generous donations over the years, the store continues to bring sunshine every day to children, families and communities by renovating rooms for children with special needs using top-of-the-line construction and design.
The organization recently completed an accessible bathroom and dream bedroom at a home in Alpharetta. Suffering from mitochondrial disease and epilepsy, 10-year-old Caitlin now loves to go to her room where various lighting fixtures provide her with her own nightly “light show.” In addition to a dream bedroom, the project also included a wheelchair-accessible shower, helping make bath time safer and more fun.
Atlanta nonprofit Sunshine on a Ranney Day recently created a unique way to raise funds to support its mission with the launch of Sunny & Ranney Home Furnishings and Décor in downtown Roswell off Oak Street. This boutique home décor store fits right into the eclectic shopping found around the Roswell square and shoppers looking for unique finds to decorate their homes are delighted with the selection of designer home goods and furniture.
Holly Ranney, Sunshine on a Ranney Day co-founder, and Jennifer Crosby, SOARD board member and Crosby Design Group president and CEO, came up with the original idea for the storefront. Crosby Design Group and other Atlanta-based interior design firms donate sellable items to Sunny & Ranney on a regular basis. This keeps merchandise fresh and shoppers coming back to find new selections.
Sunny & Ranney is currently accepting sofas, lamps, rugs, artwork, mirrors, dining tables, chairs and much more. Vital to its ongoing effort to fund future Kid Makeovers through SOARD, anyone can donate new and lightly used items to the store.
