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.
