We have opportunities for volunteers who want to support and serve the Ronald McDonald House but do not live in or near Boise. Some of the opportunities we encourage volunteers to do are:

  • organize a wish list, food, book or toy drive through your school, neighborhood, church or service group
  • donate homemade thank you, happy birthday or blank note cards with stamped envelopes for families to use
  • make note cards or post cards to be put in the lunches we send to our hospital partners, decorate and include "Enjoy your lunch, sent with care from the Ronald McDonald House"
  • make and decorate snack bags for families (all food must be purchased from a store and individually wrapped, please do not put stickers on the bags)
  • put together goodie bags for parents and kids - lotion, chapstick, small toy or stuffed animal, picture frame, journal with pen, candy, etc
  • Provide a meal to the families currently staying at the Ronald McDonald House by donating gift cards or having a meal delivered by a local restaurant

Description

Since 1988, the family of any hospitalized or ill child receiving treatment at a Boise medical facility has found a home away from home at the Idaho Ronald McDonald House. Families come from across Idaho, Eastern Oregon, Northern Nevada and beyond. The House serves hundreds of families each year that face many challenges with their sick children.

Providing these families with a safe, supportive, welcoming place to stay is the reason the Ronald McDonald House exists. The staff, volunteers and Board of Directors help to meet basic needs and provide more than just the necessities. With the help of all the supporters of the House, families are provided shelter, food, support, and care.
