Volunteer at Ronald McDonald House Akron

“If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.”
~Maya Angelou

Our House is supported by a group of dedicated, caring and committed volunteers. This team of volunteers consists of approximately 150 individuals that cover the House on a monthly rotating schedule. Our House would not exist without our volunteers!

There are several opportunities for individuals or groups to give their time at the Akron Ronald McDonald House:


The Volunteer Experience:

Our volunteers cover the House from 9am – 9pm seven days per week. We break each day into three shifts each being covered by 1-4 volunteers. The daily shifts are:

Morning: 9am – 1pm
Afternoon: 1pm – 5pm
Evening: 5pm – 9pm

Most volunteers are assigned to a specific 4-hour shift and are scheduled to come on an every other week schedule. Typically most volunteers serve approximately twice per month or 8-hours of volunteer time per month. There are several once per month 4-hour shifts options available.
