Become a Ronald McDonald House Volunteer Today


It is the volunteers that truly make the Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem a “home away from home.” Their caring words, special talents, and generous gift of time helps create a safe and welcoming environment for our families. In 2017, over 4,100 volunteers contributed more than 25,000 hours of their time to prepare 415 meals for families, help with clerical and household tasks, visit children in the hospital, and provide programming for our families. We are always happy to have an extra set of hands and there are many ways to help, as an individual or as a group.

If you are interested in completing an individual project for service hours or as a part of another organization, please contact our Director of Volunteer Services at RobL@rmhws.org or (336) 970-5651. Please note that the Teens with Heart program requires a separate application.
