George Mark Childrens House is a private home in San Leandro providing care for children with life threatening illnesses. Their families also receive support through respite care, as well as grief and bereavement counseling. The aim is to relieve suffering by providing comfort to the children and support services to the family. This essentially is giving the valuable gift of time - time for kids to be just kids and parents to be "Mom" and "Dad" instead of round the clock caregivers.

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Purchase and deliver Easter baskets and items for the children.
  • Be a volunteer for their annual Pumpkin Day, help with pumpkin decorating activities.
  • Make blankets and knitted hats for the children and their families.
  • Donate in-kind items to the organization.
