Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) provides support services for families with critically ill children who are being treated at Richmond-area hospitals. RMHC of Richmond is looking for groups of volunteers to provide home cooked meals and cookies for families staying at the house, as well as lunches that are delivered to the hospital. All food ingredients must be purchased by the volunteer and prepared in our kitchen. Volunteers may alternatively purchase pre-cooked food from a store and bring it as well. Volunteers will not be serving the food to the families, nor expect to interact with families residing at the house.
Please limit your group to no more than 10 individuals (the ideal group size for making lunch and cookies is 6 individuals or fewer.
Please find the schedule of opportunities available below:
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children.
It is the mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Richmond to keep families close. RMHC Richmond may not be able to make the medicine taste better or erase the pain of a much-needed treatment, but we can help lessen the burden for thousands of families each and every year. Since we opened our doors in 1980, we have never closed them. We keep families together at our Ronald McDonald House and our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. By providing our families with a "home-away-from-home" and a place where they can rest and refresh, we help keep families close.
