ADULT VOLUNTEER INFORMATION & OPPORTUNITIES
Volunteers are the core of every Ronald McDonald House because they give from their hearts to help make our House a "home." In 2009, the Independent Sector announced that the value of a volunteer had reached $20.85 per hour. For our House, that equates to approximately $129,332 in costs savings every year!
"After spending many months living in a Ronald McDonald House in a different state, there is no way our family can ever repay the organization for providing a 'Home Away from Home' for us. Now, we are grateful for the opportunity to volunteer at the House in Columbus and spend time in a way that helps families overcome life's challenges and impacts their lives in such a positive way." -- K. & S. Freeman, RMH Volunteers. We truly value their commitment of time, talent and resources and attribute so much of our success to their involvement with our charity.
