Sunshine Acres Children's Christmas

CEA Global Education is excited to wish the Sunshine Acres Children's Home a Happy Holiday! This year, CEA staff donated holiday gifts to 40 children at the home in Mesa, Ariz. Founded in 1954 by Rev. Jim and Vera Dingman, Sunshine Acres has provided a home to more than 1,600 children, ages 5-14 at the time of admission. Once admitted, a child may stay as long as he or she wants, even into early adulthood (college). This year, the staff at CEA Global Education's U.S. headquarters collected more than 80 gifts, including toys, clothing and shoes. CEA's resident elves Carolyne Horton, Joseph Weber, Kelly Walker and Theresa Blancas delivered the presents in time for the children to open on Christmas. It turned out to be rainy day that day, but just as CEA was hopefully able to brighten the day of these wonderful children, a rainbow peaking over Sunshine Acres brightened the dark sky as the CEA group left. This marks the third year CEA Global Education has reached out to Sunshine Acres, which does not solicit financial support as part of its mission. Thanks to the support of many individuals, foundations and corporations, Sunshine Acres has made it its mission to never turn away a child for financial reasons. Sunshine Acres is a long-term residential home, with an initial placement of one year. For more information on Sunshine Acres Children's home including how you can help, go to
