Our volunteers are the heart of Ronald McDonald House of Memphis.
Volunteers make Ronald McDonald House of Memphis a home-away-from-home for families whose children are battling cancer. Their caring, dependability and willingness to contribute their time and care 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.
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, a background check authorization form and a volunteer reference form (2 volunteer reference forms are required).
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, Red Shoe Gala, C.A.M.P. Wishing Well, Clays for Kids, Pop Tab Palooza, Radiothon, Holiday Store, etc.).
