  • 135 people are interested

The Ronald McDonald House Charities provides support services for families with critically ill children who are being treated at Richmond-area hospitals. Through a partnership with Bon Secours St. Mary's Hospital and VCU Health, the Happy Wheels cart provides a ge-appropriate activities and items to families at the Hospital. Volunteers will run the Happy Wheels hospitality cart by handing out age-appropriate activity packs and snacks to families on the inpatient children’s floor. Volunteers will arrive at the hospital, obtain the cart, go through the Happy Wheels route, return the cart, and organize supplies. Happy Wheel carts are typically ran on weekday evenings, therefore volunteers must have availability at those times to participate in the program.

Volunteers must be 18 or older and commit for at least 2 shifts per month for at least 6 months.Due to the amount of volunteers interested in the Happy Wheels program, volunteers may be placed at either location based on placement availability.

If volunteers are interested in contributing to the Happy Wheels program but are under 18 years old or cannot commit long-term, they can purchase and assemble Activity Packs and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Activity Packs consist of small toys (i.e. coloring books, crayons, play-doh, etc.) consolidated into clear gallon Ziplog bags. Detailed information can be shared with you once you’ve expressed interest.
