Art Cart Volunteer at Mercy RMHC Family Room

Ronald McDonald Family Room

The primary responsibility of the Ronald McDonald Family Room Art Cart Volunteer is to assist in providing a small sense of comfort (and FUN!) for a child or family while their child is in the hospital. The Art Cart has been sponsered by BIC and has a little bit of everything for children or make crafts or spend a little time just focused on something other than their hospital stay.

The volunteer would be going to the Pediartirc floor and visisting patient rooms to inquire if the patient or family would like to utlize any of the items on the art cart. There could be times where the volunteer crafts with the child/ family or sets up a small art station in the Pediatric waiting room for families to enjoy.

This volunteer would need to commit to at least 1 shift per week lasting at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. There could be potential to come in and see a lot of families or not see many, depending on the census on the hospital.

Art Cart Volunteers are needed Sunday-Saturday between the hours of 8:30a-11:30a or 3p-6p.

Due to COVID-19 we have temporarily suspended our volunteer services inside of the program. We would love to remain connected for future and virtual opportunities as they arise! If you are interested, please continue to connect and we will reach out with more information!
