International Award Winning
Strength in Numbers Volunteer Gathering
At Ronald McDonald House Charities® Newfoundland and Labrador, we share a common understanding that as a provincial organization, we find strength in numbers and that through our efforts, children and families also find strength in numbers. This strength comes from working side-by-side with staff, volunteers, medical professionals, donors, and advocates to create a far-reaching network of support for children and families facing some of life’s greatest challenges.
We want to celebrate the volunteerism and generosity throughout our province, which is why we invite volunteers, donors and the medical community to join us each year at the Annual International Award Winning Strength In Numbers Volunteer Training Conference in St. John’s, to unite our provincial volunteer network and rally around a common mission of keeping families of sick or injured children close to each other and the care and resources they need.
Each year this Volunteer Gathering includes:
- Annual General Meeting
- Volunteer Show and Tell
- Fun Night
- Educational Sessions
- Organization History
- Family Services
- Fundraising & Communications
- Guided Tour of Ronald McDonald House
- Volunteer Recognition and Awards Gala
- Presentation of the Annual Helping Hand Awards – in honor of founding Board Member Dr. Jack Hand
The 2019 RMHC NL Volunteer Gathering will be held April 12/13, 2019 at the Capital Hotel in St. John’s.
“Teamwork—Alone, we can do so much, with Volunteers we can do more”
At Ronald McDonald House, we often think of our families standing together as a team helping the other families that are far from home with a sick or injured child. We all know the tremendous struggles our families go through and they face them together with amazing courage.
However, there are others who also stand as a team, and without their support, we could not provide the warm and caring environment that we do. Our volunteers, the medical community and our donors who give their time, expertise and resources to make a difference for our families are our Most Valuable Team Players. For the past 6 years, we have all worked together for our families which is why the theme of this year’s conference is “Teamwork—Alone we can do so much, with Volunteers we can do more”.
We are very excited about this Training Conference and we THANK everyone for their role on this extrodinary RMHC Team!
We believe that with Teamwork, we will continue to so care for sick children and their families that need Ronald McDonald House.
