Volunteer: Meal Maker

RMHWM Meal Makers provide one of the greatest comforts our House can offer - a home-cooked meal!  From deciding the menu to preparing it in our spacious kitchen, the volunteers want to work as a team/group to create a soothing environment for our families during a stressful time.  Volunteers in this program are asked to provide the ingredients and must prepare all food on-site.  You can be scheduled to provide a meal as often as you would like as long as we have availability.  Join us in making sure our families have a hot meal to come home to every day.

Volunteer: Meal Preparation

Conductive Education Teachers from Budapest, Hungary come to the Conductive Learning Center for 4 weeks to serve West Michigan families who have children with motor impairments during a very intensive summer camp. They work diligently to create the best social, motor, and cognitive learning experiences for these kids. The center is looking for dinner time meals to show appreciation and ease the burden of being away from home during their stay. The team includes six adults and we are looking for possibly two meals a week during their 4 weeks of service. Meals can be dropped off at the center at the end of the camp day.
