Engage Individually at the Durham House


Kind hands and hearts are needed to keep Ronald McDonald House of Durham running. Read more about volunteer opportunities for individuals.

Welcome families home to RMH at the front door. Guest services volunteers provide warm smiles as families arrive to check in, and when they return from long days at the hospital.

Kind hearts and smiles are the main requirements. Because this role is so integral to our program, we ask volunteers to be available for a regular, four-hour shift each week.

Please complete form for full details.

Guest Services Volunteer Form

Serve up love in the Ronald McDonald House kitchen! The smell of freshly made treats is a wonderful way to support RMHC guest families.

Simply pick your favorite recipe(s), pack your ingredients, and come on over to prepare your treats at RMH. You can even bring a few friends if you like. The House has baking supplies and a four-station kitchen with plenty of space. Baking opportunities generally fall in the early afternoons on weekdays and weekends.

Baking volunteers:

  • Individuals and groups of up to 5 people
  • Are age 13 or older (all children must be accompanied by an adult)
  • Provide all ingredients; plan to make around 5 dozen treats
  • Bake on site in the RMH kitchen
  • Package/bag individual portions when cooled so familied can take them on the go
  • Schedule in advance

Events Volunteer Form

In-kind donations 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.

Some RMHC friends pick up supplies when they’re out for weekly shopping, and others order from the Amazon list we keep current. Either way, your kindness will make a huge impact on families as they face big battles.

You may also organize a seasonal, themed (summer or year-end) wish-list drive.
