Help Keep Families Close 

“I have truly loved being at the Ronald McDonald House. It fills my heart up seeing all those lovely little faces running all over the place. Knowing that most of them feel awful most of the time but they always seem to have big smiles on their faces.”
- Alissa Dillon, RMHC Inland Northwest Volunteer

Come in, invest yourself, and prepare to be amazed by the joy of doing.

Our volunteers give families with critical sick children the best gift of all - more time to spend with their child.

With accommodations for 22 families, more than 500 families are served each year. Your support is needed to help with the ongoing operation of this very special home. House volunteers assist with everything from light housekeeping to administrative duties to special projects. They are very much a part of the RMHC family!

We also recruit volunteers to help staff our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Providence Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. These volunteers must complete both RMHC orientation and Sacred Heart Medical Center’s volunteer orientation program.

Are you part of an organization, business, community or church group that is interested in serving families at the Ronald McDonald House?

Our Meal Program welcomes groups to come in and prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner for families staying at RMH. Many of the families return to the House exhausted and emotionally drained, and having a meal prepared for them is a simple act that means the world to them.

RMHC Global Standards require that all meals be prepared and cooked onsite at Ronald McDonald House. ClickHEREto view the Meal Program Guidelines.

If you are interested in participating in the Meal Program, please fill out the form below or contact Nancy Markley, Family Services Coordinator, at
