Help us help even more families in need

Volunteers are the heart of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central and Northern Arizona. By helping us provide comfort and support to families at our Houses through sharing of their time and talents, our volunteers bring life into our walls. We have a variety of opportunities and schedules available. We invite you to join our volunteer family!

Dinnertime Heroes

One of the best ways to support the families staying at the House is by becoming a Dinnertime Hero. The health and safety of our families always is, and will continue to be, of the upmost importance to RMHC. In light of current events, we are asking the community to consider contributing funds so we can order dinner-in and continue to serve healthy, balanced meals to our families.

Individual House Volunteers

Ronald McDonald House Volunteers play an important role in the day-to-day operations of the Ronald McDonald House. They provide administrative support, help keep our House clean and tidy, offer family support and greet families with welcoming smiles and listening ears. Some of the duties that our volunteers help with are:

  • Preparing rooms for our guests
  • Cleaning, sorting, organizing
  • Helping keep kitchen and community areas clean and organized
  • Answering phones
  • Greeting families and visitors
  • Gardening

Individual volunteers must be at least 16 years old to become a House volunteer. Prospective volunteers must complete an application and interview. If interested, please contact our Volunteer Manager Jen Donnelly at jdonnelly@rmhccnaz.org.

Group Volunteers

We count on our community to help us keep our Houses comfortable and clean. We invite your service group to help us maintain our House by scheduling your group Monday through Saturday in the mornings. A number of projects are available for groups of up to six people. Activities might involve sanitizing the toys in the playroom, organizing the kitchen, deep cleaning rooms and ground maintenance.

If interested, please contact our Volunteer Manager Jen Donnelly at jdonnelly@rmhccnaz.org.
