Family Volunteer Day

Family Volunteer Day provides families in the community an opportunity to learn about the patients and families served at Children's. Participants assist with a variety of service projects that directly benefit our patients and families. From packaging food to helping assemble activity bags for our patients, any family can make a difference. 

The event is held at Scottish Rite and Egleston. Your whole family—including kids of all ages— is invited to participate.

Note: There is no patient interaction during Family Volunteer Day due to the hospital’s infection control policy.

Former Patient Families: Ways to Give Back

If you are a former patient or family member of Children’s and are interested in giving back, there are many ways to get involved, including:

  • Volunteer your time
  • Make a monetary or in-kind gift donation
  • Organize a hospital event
  • Plan a fundraiser
  • Share your Children’s story
  • Join our Family Mentor program, which matches families facing new or challenging medical experiences with trained, veteran parents.
  • Join our Family Advisory Council, which is made up of parents of Children's patients—past and present—as well as staff members from various divisions of our hospital. This group gives us a valuable opportunity to view our care through a patient/family perspective.
  • Show your appreciation for our staff by bringing a snack basket or catering a meal for hard working staff members. Contact Melanie Turner at Scottish Rite or Ansley Johnson at Egleston for more information.
