As a volunteer, you are giving us the most valuable gift of all – your time.
Volunteers are an integral part of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southern & Central Alberta. Their generosity and commitment profoundly impacts the hundreds of families that stay at each of our Houses every year.
Our more than 600 volunteers contribute to every aspect of our organization, from helping families check in when they arrive at the House to baking more than 33,000 cookies a year, their contributions are what make our House feel like home.
If you are looking for an exciting but short-term volunteer opportunity, then one of our event-specific volunteer positions might be perfect for you! Though many volunteers choose to lend a hand at multiple events, event volunteers only need to commit to one event at a time. These shifts are typically four to six hours in length on evenings and weekends. Some of our exciting event volunteer opportunities include Rock the House Run, Freeze the House Charity Bonspiel, golf tournaments and other events in the community.
Those wishing to make a bigger commitment might be interested in one of our in-House volunteer positions. In-House volunteers commit to an average of three to four shifts per month for a minimum of one year. Some examples of in-House volunteer roles include bakers and front desk hosts.
Our Home for Dinner program is perfect for groups of friends, family or coworkers who love to cook. This group activity is a volunteer opportunity and donation all in one! Each group of up to eight people plans, purchases and prepares a home-cooked meal for our families. Groups use our in-House kitchens and all cooking tools are provided.
“It is a small commitment in our schedule, but our efforts make up one piece of a whole – we are part of a community of giving.” – Mikhal, RMHC Southern Alberta volunteer
