Give the Gift of Time.

Help us serve more families in need!

Beyond the practical and emotional support volunteers give, they have a profound effect on the cost of operating our programs. Whether it’s helping in the office, working in the Ronald McDonald Family Room or cooking for our families, we are always in need of more volunteers.

What to Expect

All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application through our Better Impact volunteer program, complete Renown Volunteer Medical Screening (if applicable) and complete a background check.  This will typically take no longer than 7 business days.  In addition, you will be asked to complete the Volunteer onboarding process.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Answering Phones: Taking messages for families
  • Baking & Cooking: Making snacks/meals for the families
  • Housekeeping Chores: Making beds, cleaning out cabinets, light housekeeping around the House
  • Organizing: Supplies, shelves, storage, etc.
  • Outside Work: Sweeping porch(s), sidewalks, and general cleanup

Our policies have recently changed, and we now require all volunteers to undergo a background check and to complete onboard training. Courses take place on select Fridays throughout the month, and we ask all current volunteers to complete them no later than July 15. If you have questions, please reach out to our staff. They can provide you with the link and further assistance. Thank you for giving your time so generously!

If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out the appropriate application below, and we’ll be in touch! In the meantime, if you have any questions, please send us an email: 

We value our friends and will never sell or give the information you provide us to anyone not connected with Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada.
