A Room To Heal seeks 'Roommates', volunteers

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A Room To Heal is looking for some "Roommates" to help with its mission of providing healing environments to children facing challenging medical conditions.

Roommates is the term the non-profit uses for its volunteers.

A Room To Heal is seeing its highest volume of room renovations in its history.

It's scheduled to complete its 10th project by the end of the Summer, which is about how many it conducts in an entire year.

The all-volunteer organization needs not only people willing to work on transforming rooms, but also new board members and volunteers willing to represent it at community functions.

Co-Founder Laurie Abess says the Room Reveals make the effort more than worth it.

"The volunteers sometimes get more out of it than the children. It just brings so much joy and satisfaction to see the smiling face of a child after they see their room. And to just understand how happy it makes these volunteers feel. So, it's great," said Abess.

A Room To Heal is holding an informational meeting for potential volunteers Tuesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Binghamton.

There will be a brief presentation followed by questions and answers plus free refreshments.
