RMH of Charlotte Volunteers
A unique opportunity for kids aged 6-11 years old to participate in volunteer service!
NOTE: This opportunity is NOT designed for large groups, such as church youth groups, scout troops or schools. The House offers other opportunities for groups - please contact our volunteer coordinator if you have a group of 4 or more that you wish to volunteer.
Please read through the description below and email Jess Palacio at [email protected] if you have any questions! Please be sure to specify the program you are emailing about.
Sign Ups are posted one month at a time.
Overview: Join our team of volunteers for a special tour and project-making activity each month at the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Kids will be shown how the House serves families and then will create a seasonally-appropriate gift for the House. Past projects have included Halloween pumpkins for guest rooms, table centerpieces for our dining room and door decorations!
Space is limited - please register each child that you plan to bring along!
ARRIVAL AND PARKING: the House has a special volunteer lot just for our volunteers! As you face the House from the street, the volunteer lot is located to the right. You may park there and walk down the sidewalk in front of the House, entering our House through the DRIVEWAY entrance. Please plan to arrive early enough to park, walk and sign your child's participation waiver!
WHAT TO WEAR: comfortable clothes
WHAT TO DO: Register each child planning to attend. You will receive an email reminder 2 days before your visit - please let us know if you can't make it so that we can open your space for another child participant. You will need to sign a waiver upon arrival.
When you arrive, parents will be given the option to enjoy a cup of coffee in our dining room, read a book in our living room, or join us (quietly) in the media room in the basement, which is where our project will be completed. We will take a tour of the House, explaining how we serve families, and then complete a project to benefit the guest families.
NOTE: all food and drink, including coffee, must remain in the dining room or kitchen area. Please do not bring food or beverage into the rest of the House.
1:00pm - 2:30pm EST
