This commitment to service reflects the company’s core values and desire to empower creativity in people of all ages and backgrounds.

Brightening Children’s Lives Through Creativity

One of Michaels’ major charitable partners is Project Sunshine, an international nonprofit that helps hospitalized children and their families through the power of play. With a network of over 20,000 volunteers, Project Sunshine delivers over 175,000 activity kits to children’s hospitals each year.

Michaels has donated 31,000 craft kits specially designed to provide therapeutic benefits for kids facing medical challenges. The kits inspire play, spark joy, and aid in the physical and emotional healing process. This act of generosity is just one of the ways Michaels gives back to its communities.
