Volunteers Make a Huge Impact on Our Families!

Individual Volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House assist in various areas at the House and at Children’s of Alabama with our Happy Wheels Cart. Volunteers are the friendly faces that greet a family as they check-in and the faces that are always willing to lend a hand. With a variety of tasks such as cleaning our common areas, organizing donations, sorting pop tabs and so much more, they are sure to stay busy. Individuals come in on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for 2 hours committing to at least 6 months of service. Get started today!
