Bring joy to children at Edward hospital!
You can help by assembling fun craft projects that the children can choose to do in their rooms, or in the Ronald McDonald Family Room. We will provide all of the supplies for this event, so there is no need to bring anything but your family.
Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital serves as a haven of respite and hospitality for families whose children and newborns are receiving treatment. Located within the pediatric unit and featuring a kitchenette, TV, shower, playroom and two Sleep Rooms, the space provides a home-like atmosphere, allowing families a moment to rest and rejuvenate.
A representative from the Family Room will be at the event to tell you more about the room and interested families can go to the room immediately after the craft assembly to deliver the crafts and receive a tour.
Putting yourselves in the shoes of the families being helped by the Ronald McDonald Family Room will leave you and your kids feeling thankful and happy that you took the time to help them through these gifts.

About the club
I Support Community’s Inside Out Club is on a mission to develop kids with character inside and out: Kids that work well together, include others, keep trying if they fail, can imagine what it’s like to be someone else, know themselves inside and out, are curious, thankful and kind, and support the community. Can you imagine if every child grew up believing and living their lives this way?
Our vision is a community filled with empathetic and engaged community contributors for generations to come. We believe the more children and families that participate in the Inside Out Club, over time, will make this vision come true. Thank you for being a part of it!
