Sunshine On A Ranney Day specializes in room & home makeovers for children with long term illnesses. The size and depth of our makeovers is dependent on several factors including available funding, location, and physical needs of the child. To nominate a child please submit an online application. SOARD committee reviews applications in March and June.  Once a decision has been made on your application you will be notified of the status.  Please note that we can only do so many makeovers and receive many applications.
