There are many ways our individual and group volunteers help our families. Through donating and preparing a meal, holding a fundraiser or providing an activity at the House, you can help Ronald McDonald House of Springfield continue to be theHouse that Love Built and care for the families that call us home. (please note that volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult during their time here at the House)

  • House & Office Support: regular shifts spent at the House to answer phones, register guests, database input, record donations, take hospital referrals and more. (When available these positions are opened to individuals 18 years or older). Download our Volunteer Application.
  • Fundraising Events: support the Committee Chairperson through marketing and preparation before, during and after the event. CLICK HERE to access our Upcoming Events.
  • Cooking for Our Guest Families: If your club, organization, faith based group wants to do an outreach project, preparing a meal for our guests to enjoy is always appreciated. CLICK HERE to Plan An Activity
  • Community Services: You or your business may be able to provide specialized services for the House. Whether you are a gardener, painter, or general fix-it handyman, we can always use an extra pair of hands.
