On going: Ronald MacDonald House of Southern New Jersey
This community outreach project of the South Jersey Bead Society involves giving direct contributions of time and talents by our members to work with the clients there and their relatives. Among its many services, this house provides a place to stay for the families of seriously ill and traumatized children treatment who are undergoing local treatment. Be sure to take a minute and read a little about the Ronald McDonald House of Southern NJ.
Kathy Foster and a dedicated team of members volunteer by travelling to this wonderful children's house located in the business and college districts of secure, downtown Camden. We have the opportunity to give hope, laughter, and inspiration to many sick persons by teaching and making beading projects with them and their relatives.
This chapter of the Ronald McDonald house is located adjacent to Cooper Hospital and has a secure, well lit, fenced in parking lot. It is located in the heart of the downtown Camden near the Rutgers University, Camden Community College, and Rowan University Camden campuses. Just a few miles from the Ben Franklin Bridge, this area is also regularly policed so volunteers should feel secure coming and leaving this area.
If you would like to volunteer in this service, check the Calendar for current days and times.
