The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Iowa is committed to improving the quality of life for children and their families through a variety of solutions. Volunteers help make a difference in the lives of the children and families served in both of our Houses — by cooking, greeting, listening, cleaning, or simply being there and helping out in any way they can. Volunteers are the heart of RMHC, helping to offset costs and allowing the Charity to direct more donations to services supporting children and their families. On behalf of the thousands of children and their families we help each year, thank you for your interest! We invite you to search volunteer opportunities below.

Have any questions in regards to our volunteer opportunities? Please feel free to call our Volunteer Coordinator, Maggie at (515) 204-2005 or email maggie@rmhdesmoines.org.
