Volunteer at Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital

Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital

Our Family Room serves as a haven of respite and hospitality to families whose children are in treatment. Located just inside the pediatric intensive care unit and outpatient service area, the space provides a home-like atmosphere away from the stress of the hospital, allowing families a moment to rest and rejuvenate, so that they can face the stress of the hospital visit with renewed energy.



The Family Room is approximately 1700 square feet and includes 2 sleep rooms with private bathrooms, a playroom for patients and siblings, a kitchenette, dining tables, television area, two computer stations and multiple sitting areas.

There are so many ways you can help. From donating a meal for families, to helping with work around the Family Room, we rely on the time and talent of our volunteers to reach our goals! No matter how you choose to help, you’re always welcome. Please choose from the options below to complete the volunteer application.
