Important Onsite Volunteer Age Restriction
Per infection control policies protecting patients staying at our Ronald McDonald Houses, all onsite volunteers must be aged 16 years or older. We appreciate your understanding that we are unable to accommodate anyone who does not meet this criteria.
However, if your child or youth group is interested in supporting RMHC Bay Area families, please consider these offsite in-kind donation and fundraising opportunities to inspire their engagement and that of their schools and activity clubs:
Comfort & Joy Drives
Families staying at our Stanford and San Francisco Ronald McDonald Houses rely on our community to meet every day needs. Your gift of soft pillows, fun toys and self-care items helps them relax and ﬁnd moments of joy together. Our year-round Comfort & Joy drives create easy opportunities to support families in need!
RMHC Bay Area Wish Lists
Comfort Kits offer families a variety of arts and crafts, travel games or activity items for all ages. These items must be new and in their original packaging.
Toiletry kits help families meet basic needs and are instrumental to helping them feel comfortable and relaxed during stays at our Houses. We are in constant need of travel-sized items packaged in clear baggies. Hotel-style shampoos, conditioners, bar soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorants are welcome.
Snack packs offer families opportunities to grab quick (but important!) bites on the way to the hospital. Individually packaged, non-perishable snacks are always need. Pretzels, fruit snacks, granola bars, cookies, chips, small waters/drinks make for great snack packs!
Valentine’s Day treats, Mother’s Day and Father's Day baskets, Camp Ronald McDonald House kits help families celebrate special occassions and school breaks throughout the year!
