The Heartbeat of our House!

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama is more than a House because of the hundreds of individuals and groups who give their time to serve our families.  There are many ways to share your time and talents with the 73 families staying under our roof. After a long, stressful day away families come home to volunteers cleaning our common areas, organizing donation items, preparing a home-cooked meal and hosting a fun, family activity. These are just a few of the many opportunities our volunteers engage in. With individual, group, off-site and one-time opportunities, there is something for everyone. We are thrilled to welcome you to the family! We hope you’ll stay awhile.
