In the pursuit of upholding our motto “Feed the Hungry and Warm the Abandoned”, Sunshine Action USA holds fortune bag events. Fortune bags are bags that are donated and distributed to our partner charities, filled with dry food and other necessities, they are given to those who are experiencing poverty and financial hardship. Making these fortune bags are a means of spreading material goods and necessities to individuals and families that are struggling and need help.
