Support for Families
The cornerstone of Ronald McDonald House is its family support programs. Our programs offer the best support possible for families. There are many ways to volunteer and help with our programs: Group & One-Time Only Volunteer Opportunities
Home for Dinner Program With the help of corporate teams, community groups, and individuals (up to 8 people), RMHC offers families a home-cooked meal 4-5 times each week. Groups plan the menu, purchase the ingredients and prepare the meal in our fully equipped kitchen. This allows families to find comfort, nourishment and the joy of a shared meal with more time spent with each other. Home For Dinner Program Information
Just Like Nan’s Baked Goods Program – Nothing feels like home more than the smell of fresh baked goods. Individuals and groups ensure Our House is always stocked with special treats fresh from the oven, Groups (up to 8 people) provide the ingredients and bake on-site, so when families return from a long day at the hospital, they can help themselves to a treat or two.
