Ronald McDonald Family Room

April 26, 2019 12:47 PM | Anonymous

The Ronald McDonald Family Room, located in McMaster Hospital, is a comfortable, quiet space for families to rest and rejuvenate while their children are being cared for in the hospital. Families visit the room to relax, enjoy a snack or refreshment, watch TV or a movie, play games or with toys, use the computer, and do laundry.

The Family Room program is expanding by opening a new Ronald McDonald Family Room in McMaster Hospital this Spring. New volunteers are needed to help ensure our programs are successful.

Volunteers provide an atmosphere of warmth and compassion to all families. Volunteers assist in the day-to-day operation of the Family Room by providing comfort and support to the families and children who visit the room. Volunteers greet and assist families, make coffee and snacks and assist families with laundry, maintain tidiness and cleanliness, and supervise programs with children and families (e.g. craft programs, games, movie night).

Please contact Shelley Harrison, Manager of Volunteer Services, at or 905-521-9983 ext.2110 for more details about how you can become involved. Information about the Ronald McDonald Family Room can be found at
