Volunteers are truly the backbone of Ronald McDonald House BC (RMH BC). Without the support of these individuals RMH BC would not be possible. Volunteers support the families in many ways. They act as society members, board members, committee members, house volunteers and even gardeners - just about any role you can imagine is helpful.
Over the past five years, Reid and Diane Adkins have proven to be very special volunteers at Ronald McDonald House BC. They are committed to bringing joy to the House by planning a variety of fun family activities. During the holidays, Diane comes to the House to decorate cookies with the children and help them celebrate the season even while they are far from home.
Diane and Reid have also thrown five Mini House Galas for the children and families who were not able to attend our annual RMH BC Galas. All of these amazing evenings took place at the Westin Bayshore where families were treated to a gourmet meal and entertained by a clown and a magician.
Themes for past family Galas have included formal dress and Halloween, so children and parents could show up wearing their scariest and craziest costumes. More recently, these Galas have taken place during the summer, allowing families to experience the beauty of Vancouver’s waterfront.
Reid and Diane Adkins, their hearts filled with kindness and generosity, are wonderful examples of the type of dedicated volunteers that are associated with Ronald McDonald House BC. Our volunteers' time and talents are a gift to the families and children staying at RMH BC. The House appreciates and thanks all our volunteers, no matter what their role.
