Home / Volunteer Your Time and Talent


Your time is the greatest gift.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child. They shouldn’t have to worry about where they’ll get their next meal or where they will sleep that night. Our volunteers remove the stress of everyday life by keeping our Houses beautiful, our kitchens full and our families well cared for. Volunteering with us is an enriching experience not only for our volunteers, but for the thousands of families who walk through our doors.

Volunteer FAQs

How often can I volunteer?

There are stages of volunteer engagement depending on your availability, interest and level of commitment. There are group volunteer opportunities daily. We schedule all volunteer opportunities at least a week in advance.

Are there age and group size restrictions to volunteer?

Volunteers of all ages are welcome! Kids are welcome to volunteer as long as they are old enough to contribute to the volunteer experience and are supervised by their adult guardian on site. Please consider any kids to be a part of the maximum number of volunteers for an opportunity. For groups that are a majority of minors, we ask that they are over the age of 13 and have guardian supervision. If a couple of kids are coming in addition to the group, we don’t have an age requirement.

What are the different volunteer opportunities?

We have many group opportunities to make lunch and dinner in our five locations, building food and items kits for families, or assist the Guest Experience team with seasonal activities – click the buttons above to sign up! Throughout the year there are also opportunities for individuals and groups to volunteer supporting Special Events. Our opportunities for individual volunteers include committing to a weekly 4 hour shift for 6 months to a year.
