Volunteer

Giving the greatest gift of all – your time

COVID-19 UPDATE

For the safety of our guest families, we have temporarily suspended volunteer activities and visitors to the Ronald McDonald House.

But you can still Help our House from your Home!

Make a donation of $50 – $100 to cover the cost of an evening meal.

We will let our guest families know you are our Guest Chef. Your warm meal is even more impactful for guest families during what is sure to be an even more uncertain time than usual.

For questions, please contact the Ronald McDonald House at 405-271-3180. Thank you!

When our programs are able to welcome back volunteers, the following opportunities will be available:

Guest Chef

After a long day at the hospital, there’s nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal. Get together with friends, family, or co-workers to plan a menu and prepare a comforting evening meal for our families. We provide the kitchen, you provide the food. Whether a one-time event, or a monthly date, we invite you to come to our Ronald McDonald House and share your culinary skills with our families.

For more information, contact Judy Baldridge, at 405-271-3193 or jbaldridge@rmhc-okc.org.

Ronald McDonald House

Volunteers play an important role in the day-to-day operations of the Ronald McDonald House. They greet families with welcoming smiles and listening ears, provide administrative support, help keep our House tidy and offer support to guest families. Volunteers serve for 3 hours weekly or bi-weekly and must be 18 years or older. For more information, contact Judy Baldridge, at 405-271-3193 or jbaldridge@rmhc-okc.org.

Ronald McDonald Family Room

Volunteers extend hospitality to visitors of the Ronald McDonald Family Room. While upholding all RMHC-OKC and hospital policies, volunteers serve as a welcoming and friendly face to families. They help check families in, record data, keep the Family Room neat and tidy, and assist families with resources. Volunteers serve 4 hours weekly or bi-weekly and must be 18 years or older. For more information, contact Judy Baldridge, at 405-271-3193 or jbaldridge@rmhc-okc.org.

Projects

Throughout the year, RMHC-OKC often looks for groups to help with various projects around the Ronald McDonald House. Volunteers can help organize supplies, stage pull-tabs, decorate for holidays, make snack bags or bake for families. There are always ways to help families feel at home. For more information, contact Judy Baldridge, at 405-271-3193 or jbaldridge@rmhc-okc.org.

Special Events

RMHC-OKC hosts two fundraising events each year, Walk for Kids in June and the Red Shoe Gala in August. Volunteers are needed to serve as team captains and help with other event related tasks. Volunteers are also needed to serve on the Red Shoe Gala planning committee.
