Family Activities Program - ID=46
Family Activities Program
Our House … is a very, very, very fun house!

At the Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Florida, we are committed to providing a “home away from home” for families in an hour of need. We know our guests face challenges no family ever wishes to experience, and we support them in many ways – by providing a warm bed, a listening ear and activities for parents and children to come together for a little fun.

This program provides a much-needed lift to families of children in crisis. Family activities can help alleviate stress, encourage quality time together and create an environment of hope. As a Family Activity Volunteer, you can provide crafts, games, services (such as massages or manicures) or entertainment. We’ve seen it all – from acrobats to animals, singing to scrapbooking! And we’re always open to new ideas … so keep them coming!

Here are a few things to know before you host …

  • Family activities may be facilitated by an individual or a group of no more than 10.
  • We schedule family activities to run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Please allow enough time for set up and clean up.
  • This volunteer service is generally a one-hour time commitment. Special arrangements can be made for special projects.
  • Performances are for our families only. Please do not invite additional “audience” members. You can expect an audience of 1 to 20 people, ranging from infants to adults.
  • Please bring all equipment and materials with you. For musical groups, we do not have a sound system but encourage you to bring your own!
  • Because of our non-denominational nature, we hope you will understand we cannot accommodate religious programs. We love all our families and respect all beliefs!

Check our Family Activities Calendar for open dates and contact our Volunteer Services Manager at (850) 477-2273 or to schedule your activity.
