Group Volunteers

JoyFULL Eats and Family Activities

Group volunteers arecurrently limited onsite at our Holcombe House location. Volunteers are currently not allowed at our three hospital locations due to COVID-19 safety precautions. Since we serve a high-risk population of immune-compromised children and their families, we are doing all we can to keep them safe.  We look forward to easing into onsite group volunteering in a comfortable and safe manner.

One of our goals at Ronald McDonald House Houston is to provide each family we serve with opportunities for positive, memory-making experiences in the midst of their challenging healthcare journeys.  These lasting family memories are often created around food and fun activities!

We need your help to create moments of warmth and magic that help Ronald McDonald House Houston become a true home away from home. 

JoyFULL Eats

For Ronald McDonald House Houston families, eating consistent, nutritious meals during a hospital stay can be a huge challenge. In addition to caring for their seriously ill child, families are often confronted with secondary, unexpected costs, including the burden of accessing/purchasing food.

JoyFULL Eats is RMHH’s solution to help alleviate hunger while families are supporting their seriously ill child. JoyFULL Eats provides healthy and convenient food options for the children and families at our four RMH Houston locations.

Volunteers can sponsor or cook a meal for our families, host a food drive to fill our pantry, or purchase H-E-B gift cards to provide quick and easy H-E-B Simple Meals to our families.

Family Activities

Help us create a space for sharing, laughter, and togetherness by sponsoring a craft or activity! With your help of sponsoring the materials, and even preparing activity kits if you choose, engaging activities are able to be facilitated currently by our on-site staff members.

One mom emailed our Family Activity Coordinator photos of her daughter completing the activity dropped off at their door along with this message, We don’t know what kind of pressure the children are under, but our daughter said that this game is very stress-relieving. Thank you for letting her be a kid.”
