Become a Comfort & Care Volunteer

The Comfort & Care program is at the very core of RMHC Bay Area’s mission to be there for sick kids and their
families, providing comfort and support, when and where they need it most. From snack packs to bedside activity
kits, your team can provide comfort and care to families during long days at the hospital. Families often say, “It
means so much to know that people out there think about us and care.”
