How to Help

There are so many opportunities to help the families staying in the Ronald McDonald House.

Volunteers

Our volunteer program is available to adults over the age of 21 who would like to spend three hours every other week in the House assisting guests. Volunteers greet guests, conduct check-in and check-out, answer phones, do basic data entry and office tasks as well as light housekeeping. Volunteers are asked to work a three hour shift every other week.

                                        Shifts available:

                                  Sun-Sat 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.  

                                  Sun-Sat 12 p.m. - 3 p.m.

Pop Tab Collection Program

Many Ronald McDonald Houses in the U.S. work with local recycling centers to raise money by collecting tabs from aluminum cans. You can start a collection at your workplace, school, community center or church.

Call us for pop tab collection centers, or drop them off at your local McDonald's restaurant.
