Changing the lives of kids with cancer, one smile at a time
There are lots of ways we can match your skills and interests to help kids and families battling cancer. Our programming is diverse and volunteers can gain new skills by helping out with Wellness programs, Communications, Breakfast Club, Hospital Outreach, Night Volunteers and more! So whether you’re available for a few hours a week or a few hours a month, we have volunteer options with varying levels of commitment.
There are many ways to volunteer with Ronald McDonald House New York
Our House was built by incredible volunteers. With the help of thousands of volunteers and hundreds of corporate groups we are able to provide daily meals, activities, and so much more for our families. Here are a few ways to get involved:
At the House
Volunteers at the House help support our staff and families with everything from helping greet families in the lobby to putting on fun activities and experiments for the entire family to enjoy.
At a Partner Hospital
A little bit of cheer can go a long way, especially at an unfamiliar hospital setting. Our Hospital Outreach volunteers serve children who are not residents of our House, but who still need encouragement while they undergo treatment at nearby hospitals.
Each year, Ronald McDonald House New York presents Hope Awards to four volunteers who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to our families and pediatric oncology.
