COUNT RMH Housewarmer Volunteering (Ronald McDonald House)

RMH is a 70 room hotel largely operated by volunteers. Families with a sick child at Nationwide Children's Hospital (or other Franklin county hospital like OSU) stay there and agree to clean their room while there. Here is the description of this volunteer position from RMH:

"Housewarming Volunteer

Work with our guests to provide a home-like environment - greet, assist with family needs, answer phones, give tours, assist with checkin/checkout, prepare guest rooms after checkout, clean facility, laundry, restock supplies and staff the front desk. Our Housewarmers volunteer at least one four-hour shift a month. All Housewarmers must complete an application and attend an orientation before they can start volunteering. our Volunteer Application can be completed online by clicking here, or can be downloaded by clicking here. Once we have received your application we will sign you up for an orientation session."

You would need to complete an application and attend orientation in advance. At orientation you will complete forms agreeing to keep family/patient info private and allowing a background check, tour the facility and sign up for your first of three training shifts. Daily shifts are: morning 9 am - 1 pm, afternoon 1 pm - 5 pm and evening 5 pm - 9 pm.

    I just filled out the app, so hopefully I'm allowed to come on Sunday. But we social work professors are so disreputable, I just don't know!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
