Surrey Family Room Volunteers

Surrey Family Room Volunteers

The Ronald McDonald Family Room is a must-have resource for families with a sick kid staying at Surrey Memorial Hospital. And our volunteers are what make it feel welcoming. A smile, a helping hand, plus some administrative support and housekeeping are all that’s needed to bring a little relief to a parent’s often stressful day.

Thursday 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Saturday 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Family Meal Program

Share the gift of a homemade meal with our families. Having a night off from cooking is a huge relief for the thousands of families who call Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon home each year. Bring together a group of your friends, colleagues or family to cook a healthy, delicious meal for our families.

Other group opportunities

Other group opportunities

It’s a lot of fun to help out around the House, especially as a team. That’s why we’re always happy to welcome corporate, student or community groups looking to have fun while making a positive impact on our guests. If you have a group of 20 or fewer, we offer two opportunities a month to volunteer.

 

Coordinating group volunteer projects have both operational and material costs for Ronald McDonald House BC. So we ask our group volunteers to join us in keeping this great program going by considering a donation (suggested amount $1,000). Donations are fully tax-deductible and are appreciated but not required to volunteer in the House.
