GROUP VOLUNTEERS

Family Meal Program: After a long day at the hospital, sitting down to a warm meal together is a moment of peace and comfort for families at Ronald McDonald House Houston. Depending on the location, you may have the option to prepare the food yourself at our on-site kitchen, or a commercially catered meal may be required. Just like at home, our families need a well-balanced meal that includes a main dish, sides, dessert and a beverage. (No alcohol, please) Due to the health of our children and in following hospital recommendations, no one under the age of 16 years old may serve a meal or host an activity.

Family Activities: Bring a little fun, creativity and plenty of smiles as you host your own activity! Activities and events provide a welcome distraction and help alleviate stress, giving families the opportunity of quality time spent together. Activities include arts & crafts, game night, field trips, movie night, spa day, bringing in a sports team mascot or players, karaoke night, ice cream social, and much more! Get creative or consult with our Family Activities Coordinator for more ideas.
