Monthly Activity:

  • This month’s activity are Affirmation Cards for the parents!

    • The affirmation cards are laminated and parents can finish the  sayings by using the sharpies provided.

    • Affirmation cards are located underneath the tv. The scavenger hunt is still available for the kids! 

  • The Scavenger Hunt for kids is also still available! 

    • There are clues throughout the Family Room leading those seeking treasure to the volunteer desk. The scavenger hunt prize is a collection of delicious candies in ziplock bags located in the top drawer of the volunteer desk. 

Phone Charger Station:

  • We know they're one of the top items families ask for: Phone Chargers! A phone charger station has been conveniently placed in the Family Room for families to utilize as they need. ​

    • Multiple devices can be charging at once, with multiple types of device charging cords. 

    • The station and its cords are labeled for the RMFR and must be left in its designated spots. 

    • Per the Guest Guidelines and Expectations, the Ronald McDonald Family Room is not responsible for the personal belongings of the Family Room Guests. 

Restocking Snacks, Toiletries, etc.

  • During your shift, please remember to restock any or all items if you have down time! (I like to do this first thing during my shift just to make sure everything is ready to go right away!)

  • This includes: snacks, coffee, plasticware, toiletries, etc. There is typically a large back stock of items in the storage closets and labeled for easy finding.

  • Let us know if you have any questions!

Family Freebies:

  • If you ever notice grab bags, books, or other items that were donated to the Family Room that are free for families to have, don't be shy to set them on the snack counter for families to grab them! There is a sign that has been created for you to set out with these freebies so families know these items are for them! I try my best to store these items underneath the snack counter, in the cabinets. I also store the sign here when there isn't any donations to set out. Let me know if you have any questions!

SLCH Volunteer Office Update:

  • The SLCH Volunteer Office has a NEW lock on the door and also has a keypad! The office will remain unlocked during normal our office hours (M-F 8:30-4:30) but it will now be accessible to evening and weekend volunteers. If you are here for an evening/weekend shift and the door is locked, you can punch in 3-4-0-0 to unlock the door. You now have access to lockers and snacks! 

Volunteer Links

  • Exceed: rmhc.arreva.com

  • Exceed, Volunteer Portal, and VicTouch/Volgistics are all saved on the favorites bar on Chrome for easier access for you! Please utilize these links during your shift. 

Cheers,
