shutterstock_190903265Ronald McDonald House relies significantly on the contributions of volunteers!  We could not do what we do without them.

We acknowledge the extraordinary value of our volunteers and provide them with appropriate training, meaningful opportunities, and special recognition for their involvement. Our volunteers are important liaisons to the community and anchors of support to the children and families who stay at the House.

House volunteers help out by taking care of guest needs, keeping the house clean, making meals or baked goods for the guests, assisting with office projects and much more. Our volunteers also help out at fundraisers that take place throughout the year, including our annual golf tournament, trivia night, and many more. The wonderful support we receive from volunteers helps us to continue to have successful fundraisers!

We’re always ready to welcome a new member to our volunteer family!

Volunteer Opportunities:
