Become a Volunteer

Our volunteers are the heart of Ronald McDonald House of Memphis.

Volunteers' caring, dependability and willingness to contribute their time helps to create a safe and welcoming environment where families can stay together when they need to be together the most. 

Volunteers contribute their time to prepare meals for families, host movie and pizza nights, clean and organize kitchens, and play areas, restock pantries and staff the front desk. By cooking meals, cleaning kitchens and play areas, volunteers allow families more time to spend with their sick children.

  1. House Volunteers are often responsible for Office/clerical duties, Housekeeping, and Family Services.  The minimum age is 18 for House Volunteers and we require a 6 month minimum commitment (at least one 4-hour shift per month).  Volunteers are required to fill out a Volunteer Service Application which includes a background check authorization form and provide two volunteer reference forms. 
  2. RMHC Memphis Special Event Volunteers help with various in house and third party events.  The minimum age is 16 for special event volunteers. Special event volunteers are not required to attend a volunteer orientation session. (i.e. Drive it Home Vehicle Raffle, C.A.M.P. Wishing Well, Clays for Kids,  Pop Tab Palooza, Radiothon, Holiday Store, etc.). Please fill out the  Volunteer Service Application.  
  3. Information on and application for hosting an activity or serving a meal.
