Volunteers are needed for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama (ongoing opportunity): Looking for a way to volunteer your time in the medical environment? Become a Happy Wheels Cart Volunteer and bring snacks, activities and joy to the children and their families waiting in the clinic areas at Children’s of Alabama.
DISCLAIMER: All volunteers must be 16 years or older. The cart is operated and stocked by RMHCA and operates at Children’s, therefore all interested volunteers must complete the volunteer process for both RMHCA and Children’s and adhere to both policies.
One of the biggest barriers to cancer care is transportation, because even the best treatment cannot work if a patient is unable to get there... That is why the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Road to Recovery program provides patients with free rides to/from their cancer-related treatments. For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to treatment, volunteers donate their spare time and the use of their personal vehicle to give patients a much-needed ride. And ACS needs your help! Every volunteer makes a difference and every driver has what it takes to help save lives.
