Volunteers play an essential part in the fulfillment of our mission at the Ronald McDonald House of Temple by providing services to families coping with the crisis of a critically ill or injured child. There are many group and individual opportunities available for volunteering.
Share a Meal
Provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, or make baked goods for our families. Meals must be prepared here at the House or prepared in a commercial kitchen. Groups, families, or individuals can volunteer to prepare a meal as a one-time event or on a scheduled basis. More info
Family Room Volunteers
Family Room Volunteers extend the hospitality to visitors of the Ronald McDonald Family Room® at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center. While upholding all Family Room and hospital policies, they help check in families, record data, keep the Family Room neat and tidy, serve as a warm and friendly face to families and assist them with resources.
Our Memorial Garden and houseplants need love too! Volunteer to plant, weed, rake or water to make the House an attractive place to stay for our families.
Holiday and Special Events
Bring cookies or treats. Make baskets or bags of treats with a holiday theme for our families. Decorate the House for the holiday or provide individual room decorations. It is even more difficult to be away from home during holidays. Your volunteer efforts and/or donations “with the holiday in mind” will go a long way towards easing the additional strain of our families having to be away from home over the holiday season.
Help keep the House spotless for our families. Our cleaning chores are inclusive of cleaning everything A to Z, top to bottom, inside and outside!
Outdoor Play Area
Help keep our outdoor play area clean and safe for the children of the families that stay here. Cleaning patio furniture, raking and adding mulch, washing the playground equipment or just let your inner child come out and play! A clean, safe play area is great for children and for their parents too!
Pull Tabs Program
Collecting pull tabs are a great way for children, schools, and other large groups to get involved in fundraising for the House. You can help support the Ronald McDonald House of Temple by collecting the little tabs you pull to open soda, soup or other aluminum cans. Let’s Get Started!
Host a Fundraiser
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday or holiday, a special occasion such as a wedding or anniversary, honoring an individual or someone’s memory, or simply helping others, you can give the gift of togetherness to families served by RMHC-Temple. Click here to learn how!
Wish List Drive
One of the most important ways you can help is by donating items we need for our families and Houses! Help us fill our Houses with much-needed items to help make each House feel like a home for our guest families, so they can focus on what’s important—caring for their seriously ill child. Shop our wish list today!
