Our dedicated volunteers are considered the “heart” of the Ronald McDonald Houses of the Ozarks. Without these generous individuals, our Houses would not be possible.
The primary responsibility of a Ronald McDonald House volunteer is to provide a “home” for families of seriously ill and injured children. Our volunteers do a little bit of everything, including checking in families, baking special desserts, restocking rooms, cleaning, answering the phone, assisting with mailings, running errands and computer entry.
Our goal is to customize each volunteer’s experience to the interests of the individual. We strive to showcase each volunteer’s special skills. We have a variety of needs, such as giving tours, speakers bureau, fundraising activities, grounds beautification, cooking and maintenance.
Generally, our in-House volunteers commit to one three-hour shift each week. Volunteers work with a member of our management team or another volunteer throughout their shifts. The House is staffed by volunteers from 9:00am to 9:00pm.
Individuals interested in visiting the House to learn more about our volunteer program are encouraged to call and schedule a tour!
