Get Involved

Give the greatest gift of all – your time!

Volunteers are at the heart of the programs run by Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Houston.

Serving in our 4 locations throughout the Texas Medical Center, our volunteers provide love and support to thousands of families each year. Caring and cheerful volunteers are often the first voices heard on the telephone, and the first welcoming faces families see at the door.

Whether they are planning and coordinating a family activity, preparing and serving a meal for the families, restocking our snack pantries, or committing to a 3-hour shift each week or month, our volunteers make our House and Family Lounges more like home.

Explore these opportunities for you, your friends, and your coworkers to experience the joy and satisfaction of giving some of your time and talents to help children and families in need.
