What We Do

Offering strength and hope each day, every day

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern NC provides a “home-away-from-home” for families of children receiving medical treatment on an inpatient or outpatient basis.  Our Houses are a temporary place to stay and are not a treatment facility.

I want to volunteer, what steps do I need to take first?

The Ronald McDonald House would not exist without the help of volunteers. Unfortunately, our in-person volunteer program positions are still very limited.

However, we have virtual opportunities available including hosting a Wishlist Drive, participating in fundraisers, or becoming a social media ambassador. We do not have an age requirement for virtual volunteers so these opportunities can be completed by anyone!

For more information, check out our Volunteer Page.

Can I receive court-appointed volunteer hours?

Due to the unique nature of all volunteer placements at the House, it is our policy to not accept any volunteer placements by court-mandated referrals.
