Make a difference to the families who walk through our doors

Ronald McDonald House Southwestern Ontario operates with a team of over 150 volunteers and we are always looking for enthusiastic and energetic volunteers to help with areas of the House and Family Room!

Individual Volunteer Opportunities:

We have a number of volunteers who are a vital part of making our House a "home away from home" by tending to the different rooms in the House and becoming that friendly face that brings comfort to the families staying with us. Some of the many benefits of becoming a volunteer include making new friends within the community and getting to know the wonderful families who use the House.

Group Volunteering and Teambuilding Opportunities

If you would like to get involved with some friends, or have colleagues at work interested in giving back to their community, our group and teambuilding opportunities are just for you!

  • Dinner at Our House

    Have a group of 6-8 people join us at the House to make a meal for our 34 guest families. When our families spend all day at the hospital with their sick child coming back to the House for a homemade meal can make all the difference.

    Bring a group of people together in our House kitchen to bake treats for our guest families to enjoy. You can make anything from chocolate chip cookies to vegan blueberry muffins that will be set out here at the House and in our Ronald McDonald Family Room®.
    We provide some basic ingredients, so this option is the most cost-accessible way to volunteer in our House Kitchen.
