Support your local community and Sunshine Communities by frequenting Sunshine Studios and Georgette’s Grounds and Gifts in Maumee, Ohio. Owned and operated by Sunshine Communities, both establishments provide employment and inclusion opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities.
Sunshine Studios is located in Uptown Maumee and has provided employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to create art and explore the community since 2014. The individuals produce ceramics, rugs, and more that are sold in the store. Each group works alongside excellent staff who teach life and work skills. Proceeds from each piece of art created by the individuals we support goes back to Sunshine.
The studio also offers public classes weekly, studio time, and space for meetings, parties, and other gatherings. Along with classes, Sunshine Studios booths can be found at dozens of local craft and art fairs throughout the spring, summer, and holiday seasons.
