Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Greater Washington DC is recruiting volunteers to work a weekly 3 hour shift in the Ronald McDonald Family Room located at Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC). The Ronald McDonald Family Room is located on the Hematology/Oncology floor at CNMC. Open 9AM to 9PM seven days a week, the Ronald McDonald Family Room is a quiet oasis within the busy hospital environment where parents and other caregivers can retreat for a few minutes of respite while still being just steps from their child. Room amenities include a guest kitchen, laundry facilities, computer stations with Internet access, comfortable seating with a TV and reading material, and a small play area. Shifts are available 7 days a week: 9AM-12PM, 12PM-3PM, 3PM-6PM and 6PM-9PM. Volunteer responsibilities include greeting and assisting families, assisting with family programming activities, re-stocking the room, and some light housekeeping. Volunteers will be cross trained by both RMHC and CNMC. A commitment of two 3-hr shifts a month/60 hours a year is required.
