Important Volunteer Update – March 12, 2020
In light of the current Coronavirus situation, Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is proactively working to protect the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, staff and visitors.
Our House is uniquely vulnerable to the spread of this virus as we house families who are coming to and from the hospital visiting with their immune-suppressed loved ones. This is in addition to our House providing many communal spaces such as the kitchen and dining room. To reduce the possibility of infection, we are temporarily suspending all in-house volunteer opportunities through April 15th.
We will continue housing patient families and supporting the health and safety of our guests and staff through increased systematic daily cleaning and disinfecting and posted signs to promote hand washing.
Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is supported by a strong foundation of volunteers. We rely volunteers each month to maintain a safe, clean, friendly environment. The efforts of our volunteers produce a homelike environment to the many guests who come through our doors in desperately stressful situations with their children.
Join the many hundreds who have been changed by their gift of giving to Children’s Hope. Whether it’s in guest services, making a meal for the families, painting a guest room, or volunteering at one of our many charity events, Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House can use your help.
Your time is the most valuable commodity you have and we plan to spend it wisely. We ask for no set time commitment from our volunteers but have many who have been with us for years. We provide a safe, clean environment for our volunteers with clear direction for the task at hand. Staff will always be on hand to assist and answer any questions you may have.
