Family Room Volunteers

Often steps away from a pediatric or intensive care unit, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer a place to relax and regroup at the hospital, close to their sick child.

Family Room volunteers help create a welcoming area for families. Additionally, volunteers will help to make sure the rooms are clean and stocked with supplies. These are regular, committed volunteer positions.  In order to serve families well, we rely on volunteers to be consistent.
