  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 355 people are interested

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 rely on 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.

Sew/crochet/knit comfort items: blankets of varying sizes (baby through teens), stuffies with soft eyes, and (sewn) pillowcases keep guests warm, cozy, and comforted both in the hospital and when they go home.

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.

Host an online wishlist drive. Each month we publish a wishlist of items that are running low. You can always see our current wishlist at Highlight the needs on social media. Feel free add information from our blog (linked on our website), or repost from our social media sites, so your friends and family can understand the impact that their gift makes. Help us spread the word!

Finished items can be sent to:

About Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho, Inc.


139 East Warm Springs Avenue, Boise, ID 83712, US

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho supports families of ill or injured children by keeping them together in times of medical need. OUR VISION: Making families the center of our purpose, we will: • Provide them with a safe and secure place for healing filled with hope and comfort. • Invest and strengthen healthcare partnerships to meet families’ growing and changing needs. OUR VALUES: • We are caring, friendly and supportive. • We are nurturing and family centered. • We act in a manner that is professional, responsive and respectful. • We celebrate our heritage. • We operate with accountability and transparency.


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.
