If you choose to be an in-House volunteer, what are your primary areas of interest? (Choose one or more)
Fund-raising: With 100% of our operating budget coming from special events, this aspect is crucial to our continued existence. We have many options to choose from throughout the year.
Meal preparation & baking: Provide a meal of the day for approximately 30 people. This would include providing the ingredients and meal prep as well as kitchen clean-up. You could also bake muffins for breakfast or cookies for snacking.
Cleaning/maintenance: All of those chores you do in your own home also need attention at our House. Those would include light housekeeping, restocking pantries, & small repairs. Serving up to 65 people each day, something will always need attention.
Grounds & gardening: There are seasonal needs such as leaf removal in the Fall and weeding that needs attention 9 months out of the year. We also need care for our indoor plants.
Note: While many of our prospective volunteers express and interest in working directly with children and their families, the vast majority of the population we serve at our RMH have little ones in the neonatal and critical care units, and therefore we rarely have children staying with us.
