Volunteer as a Group

The Ronald McDonald House of Ann Arbor provides a "home away from home" for families of children who are receiving treatment at area hospitals.

We offer a variety of service opportunities for groups interested in volunteering at the House. Church groups, university students, high schools, office staffs and other organizations have done group service for the House. We ask that you limit your group size to eight people at a time, age 16 years and older to maintain the restful atmosphere at the House.

Some suggested group service opportunities include:

Cooking a meal for the residents at our Ann Arbor House. Many families staying at our house do not have the time or energy to prepare a full meal at this time in their lives, so your meal is greatly appreciated. Meal preparation includes planning the menu, shopping for food, preparing and serving the meal at the House, and then cleaning our kitchen. Please plan to cook for 35-40 people.

Coordinate a donation drive for the Houses by distributing copies of our "Wish List", collecting donated items and bringing them to the House. We are especially interested in donations of snack items, especially those that come individually packaged, and microwaveable meals such as soups and Easy Macs.

If you're interested in volunteering as a group, please call one of our House managers at 734-994-4442.
