Group Opportunities at the Chapel Hill House


Ronald McDonald House Charities offers many ways for schools, civic groups, congregations, and other groups to lend their hands and hearts to support the mission.

Build member morale while helping seriously ill children and their families!

Providing a meal is a wonderful way to support RMHC families while tending to one of their most basic needs. The meal program removes a heavy burden from parents so they can focus on their child’s care and wellbeing. Your group can offer the warm welcome of a nutritious warm meal to families at the end of a tough day.

We welcome meal teams of up to eight people seven days a week. Meals are scheduled in advance, and the online meal calendar can be viewed below, with open dates appearing blank. Come cook up love for families!

Can’t volunteer to cook a meal, reach out to arrange a catered meal for families!

Meal teams:

  • Consist of up to 8 people
  • Plan and provide dinner for 45-55 people (protein, starch & vegetable)
  • Members are age 13 or older; all groups have a minimum of one adult leader

Complete on-site leader training before first meal date

Wish-list drives keep Ronald McDonald House running. Snacks, toiletries, and cleaning supplies are always needed to welcome families home. These critical supplies are also shared with tens of thousands of families of pediatric patients at our partner hospitals each year.

Groups can organize in-office wish-list drives or direct interested employees to order from our Amazon list. Either way, your kindness will make a huge impact on families as they face big battles.

Consider organizing a seasonal, themed (summer or year-end) wish-list drive for office excitement and fun!

Ronald McDonald House Charities hosts a colorful collection of community-based events to raise funds for the mission. Volunteer groups are needed for day-of set-up, guest registration, support throughout individual event timelines, and for post-event clean-up. Volunteer engagement at your site is also available through wish-list drives and other projects.

There’s an RMHC event for every company! Contact us to discuss how your employees can become involved – we look forward to talking with you.

A little love goes a long way! Nowhere is this truer than with the Ronald McDonald House Charities pop-tab program.

School groups, service clubs, congregations, families, neighborhoods, and more collect pop tabs from aluminum cans. The recycling income generated from pop tabs helps support programs like Ronald McDonald Houses and in-hospital Family Rooms across the Triangle. Tabs can be delivered to RMH of Chapel Hill, RMH of Durham, or any American Legion post in NC.

It’s truly a program where everyone belongs!
