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

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.


Make
note cards to be included in lunches and snack bags. Please include "Sent with care from the RMHC of Idaho." Feel free to add art, jokes, or non-religious inspirational quotes. Please keep in mind that quotes should be less "self help/motivational" style and more encouraging/expressing care.


Make and decorate 20 snack bags for families with the following: (all food should be store bought and individually wrapped, except for the fruit)

  • plastic spoon
  • pudding cup
  • chip, pretzel or gold fish
  • granola, protein or Nutrigrain bar
  • fruit snack or fruit leather
Assemble wellness kits to give out to families. Wellness kits include travel tissues (Kleenex or other brand), travel-size hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and one disposable facemask in a quart-sized resealable plastic bag (Ziploc or other brand). Please be sure to prepare the wellness kits in a sanitary environment.
Finished items can be sent to:

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.
