Making Rounds at Local Hospitals
RMHC-SLA is reaching out to provide comfort, care, and support to families outside of our new House on the campus of Children's Hospital New Orleans. Our Hospitality Cart brings a touch of home to parents and siblings who are at the bedside of the pediatric patients at Ochsner Medical Center and coming soon, we will have a second cart on site at Children's Hospital!
Our volunteers make their rounds through the pediatric floors with free coffee, soft drinks, bottled water, snacks, toiletries, and gifts for the families and patients. While parents and children alike appreciate having drinks and snacks without having to make a trip to a vending machine or to the coffee shop, “the little ones love the toys and stuffed animals, and the teens really appreciate the iTunes gift cards!” says volunteer Judi Russell.
How to Support Our Hospitality Cart
Please give us a call at (504) 486-6668 for more information on how you can help. Donations of snack food items, coffee, toiletries, gift cards, and toys to the Ronald McDonald House will help us serve more families.
