We Love Our Volunteers!

A group of RMHC volunteers

Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southwest Florida programs and events are supported by 1000+ volunteers who dedicate their time, talent, knowledge, and resources to ensure we can serve families and children who need our help.

Volunteers help in many ways. They:

  • Assist families and staff at the Ronald McDonald House in Fort Myers
  • Care for families in the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Golisano Children’s Hospital
  • Assist at our fundraising events
  • Host Wish List drives or other third-party fundraisers
  • Participate in our Family Meal Program by cooking dinner for our families (visit rmhcswfl.org/family-meal to see how this process works!)
  • Prepare fresh baked goods for our families on the go
  • Help put together our brown bag lunches for families utilizing our Family Room at Golisano
  • Provide a lending ear to families who need a friend to talk to

URGENT NEED: Our Family Room needs volunteers! We are looking for someone with a flexible schedule, able to volunteer one-two shifts per month. There are three shifts per day: 8am-12pm, 12pm-4pm, 4pm-8pm. If you are interested, please fill out the application below.
