Volunteers are the heart and soul of our House. They are essential to our mission of keeping families close. Whether it’s greeting guests and visitors, cleaning and preparing rooms for families or cooking and serving a meal, we couldn’t do what we do without you. Volunteers like you truly make a difference in the lives of our families.

It takes a lot of hands to keep a House of our size warm, welcoming and clean when our families arrive. As an individual volunteer you’ll help with the day-to-day needs around the House.

  • All volunteers must be at least 14 years old
  • Background checks (18 and older) are required
  • Family Room volunteers must also complete hospital volunteer orientation

We welcome groups of up to 10 people (age 14+) seven days a week from 9AM-9PM at the Ronald McDonald House. Whether you’re cleaning the House, preparing an activity or restocking our kitchen your generosity makes a difference.

Service hours are required for many reasons, ranging from school and confirmation requirements to civic clubs and participating in public assistance programs. RMHC Dayton provides a meaningful experience for individuals seeking these hours.

Give the gift of a prepared meal to our families. We offer a number of ways for you to feed our families. Having a home-cooked or delivered meal gives our families one less thing to worry.
