Our Guest Services, Meal Group and Activity volunteers make
our Ronald McDonald Houses feel like a “home-away-from-home.

Individual Volunteers

Guest Services Volunteers maintain a set schedule of two-hour shifts weekly or biweekly. Guest Services volunteers must be at least 18-years-old and commit to at least six months of service, subject to our needs.

  • Administrative Volunteer: Assist our volunteer management team with administrative tasks as needed.

  • Front Desk Volunteer: Be the “host or hostess” of our House. Greet guests and volunteers, answer phones, help with family check ins and give tours.

  • House Refresher Volunteer: Help keep our House clean and organized. Clean play areas, organize library, wipe down tables, re-stock items around the House, sanitize toys, etc.

  • Kitchen Queen or King: Help keep our kitchen spotless and welcoming for families and meal groups. Clean out refrigerators, empty dishwashers, re-stock kitchen supplies, etc.

Because of the unique nature of all our volunteer placements, our policy is to not accept any volunteer placements by any court-mandated referrals.
