Volunteer Opportunities

Apply to Volunteer Here

Volunteers play an essential part in the fulfillment of our mission at the Ronald McDonald House of Temple of providing by service to families coping with the crisis of a critically ill or injured child. There are many group and individual opportunities available for volunteering.

Prepare Meals

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.

Family Room Volunteers

Family Room Volunteers extend the hospitality to visitors of the Ronald McDonald Family Room®. 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 Tab Program

Help the environment, help the House! Collect pull tabs from soft drink cans which are recycled and the money received used for operational expenses for the House! This is a great school or club project!

These are just a few of the opportunities for volunteers here at Ronald McDonald House of Temple Texas! If you have volunteer questions and/or suggestions, please contact our House Operations Manager, Leilani Kitchings, at (254)-770-0910, or email her at leilani.kitchings@rmhc-temple.org.
