Get Involved

Help us help even more families in need

The families we support are far from home and worried about their children. By providing a place to stay and support through our additional programs, we help families get through difficult times. But we need your help. Our House hosts families 365 days out of the year.

At this time we are only accepting limited donations to ensure the safety of the families we serve:

  • Grocery store gift cards (Walmart, Save Mart, etc.)
  • Frozen meals (store-bought only)
  • Gas cards for our Travel For Treatment program
  • Individually wrapped snacks (store-bought only)

Ways to Help


Whether you’re allocating foundation dollars or just have a few pennies to spare, everything helps. Just $10 provides a family with one night at the Reno Ronald McDonald House.


Whether it’s helping in the office, staffing our Family Room, or cooking for the families, we are always in need of more volunteers.
