Make a difference to the families who walk through our doors.
Volunteers make the difference in the lives of all the families that come through our doors – cooking, hosting, listening, nurturing, or by simply being there and helping out in any way they can. In fact, volunteers help to offset costs and allowing the Charity to direct more donations back to programs supporting children and their families.
Whether you are an individual looking for an ongoing opportunity, or you are part of a group looking for a one-time project, there’s a place for you at RMHCDC!

New Yearlong Partnership with Giant Food Aimed at Providing Healthy Meals for Families Coping with Critically Ill Children
In an effort to promote health, wellness and giving back locally, Giant Food’s Registered Dietitian team created month long meal plans volunteers can follow to offer families staying in the DC area houses a varied menu of healthy and delicious options. These meal plans will be available to volunteers in each house as well as online.
In addition to providing the recipe and shopping list, Giant Food is also making it easier for volunteers by providing $20 gift cards to groups cooking meals for RMHCDC families. Ronald McDonald House managers will mail the gift cards to volunteer groups ahead of their scheduled volunteer day, while supplies last.
