Sunflower Hill Online Activities

In response to the Covid-19 Shelter-at-home Order, we have created Sunflower Hill Online Activities. Each activity is created to get you moving, learning, or just stepping outside for some fresh air!

Our heartfelt thanks to those who have supported our virtual programming: East Bay Community Energy, City of Pleasanton, Rotarian Foundation of Livermore, #GivingTuesdayNow donors, and our Sun’s OUT Fun’s OUT supporters!

We’ve had so much fun creating over 150 videos designed for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities! We’re extremely thankful to all who have supported our efforts, our collaborators, and participants!
