Ronald Visits the Family Room

RMHC of the Bluegrass(r) provides housing for families of ill or injured children in a communal living setting. It is critical to maintain a safe and sanitary environment in order to protect the health of Families, Employees, Volunteers, Visitors or Others to help flatten the community spread of COVID-19 in Fayette County and beyond. Patient facing volunteer opportunities such as this are temporarily suspended per hospital policy.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room is expanding to include a "Happy Wheels" Hospitality Cart to serve families seeking treatment in the UK Pediatrics Specialty Clinic. Volunteers will staff the cart and distribute snacks, drinks, simple activities while being a calm and positive presence. Currently, the Happy Wheels Cart is operating on Wednesdays from 10am-1pm, but we do anticipate additional days being added in the fall.

Volunteers must be 18 years or older and are asked to sign up for at least two three-hour shifts per month for 6 consecutive months.

The Happy Wheels Hospitality Cart is a partnership between Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass and the Kentucky Children's Hospital. All volunteers must go through the process of becoming a volunteer through KCH, which includes an orientation, background check, drug screen and TB test. The next orientation is on September 28, 2019.
