Ronald McDonald House of Central Iowa
The House That Love Built

The Ronald McDonald House needs volunteers to help us with our weekly housekeeping. We cannot do what we do as staff without weekly or biweekly volunteers. Our house helpers assist with cleaning, laundry, room preparation, admissative needs, and more.

We are looking for individuals who are energetic and interested in helping our families feel like they are at home while they are staying with us.

Some things to note:

  • Volunteers will be asked to help with multiple needs, from cleaning the house and rooms to packing lunches, helping with donations, helping prepare evening meals, helping with admissions needs, and more. It all depends on what our needs are during your shift.
  • All volunteers will have to go through a background check and volunteer orientation prior to becoming a House Helper

*If you have a specific skill that you have that could help with around the house, like carpentry or event planning, please let us know, as there might be some unique opportunities available.*

    • located at 1111 6th Ave., Des Moines. It is located on the 4th floor.
      • Due to MercyOne House being located inside MercyOne, all volunteers must have been vaccinated for COVID-19.

Mission Statement

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Iowa, Inc. Enriches the Quality of Life for Children and Their Families.


Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHC can help address those problems, whether they involve housing that’s near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community. In 2015, RMHC has local Chapters in 60 countries and regions with:

  • 353 Ronald McDonald House
  • 196 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms
  • 50 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles
  • Grants to non-profit organizations that also focus on the needs of children
  • Scholarships to students across the United States
  • Chapters around the world creating country-specific programs
