Family Room Volunteers assist families using the Ronald McDonald House Family Room, located inside the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. Family Room Volunteers offer support and a listening ear to families throughout the day. In addition, they stock snack cabinets and the refrigerator, ensure all rules and policies of the Family Room are adhered to and sign out videos, DVDs and game systems.
Family Room volunteers literally touch the lives of thousands of families who are coping with a seriously ill or injured child.
Generally, our Family Room volunteers adopt (1) three-hour shift each week. The Family Room is staffed by volunteers each day from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Comprehensive training and background checks are required of all volunteers.
