The heart of the House.

Ronald McDonald House volunteers keep our program running smoothly 365 days a year. A volunteer is often the first face a family sees when they arrive. Volunteers keep the Ronald McDonald House tidy and welcoming; they assist guests at check-in and throughout their stay. They are often a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on.

Ronald McDonald House volunteer criteria:

  • Must be 18 years or older.
  • Volunteer opportunities range from 1 – 3 hour shifts, weekly. We ask that volunteers be prepared to stay with the organization for at least a year.
  • Pass a background check.
