Volunteers are the Heart of the “House That Love Built”
Ronald McDonald House Charities® of CNY volunteers are the heart of the house. They assist us in many areas on an ongoing basis and make a difference in the lives of our guest families. On average, volunteers save us approximately $100,700 per year.
“Every person at the CNY Ronald McDonald House, from the staff to the volunteers, was amazing. They helped make being scared and in a strange place that much easier by offering a safe and comfortable environment. I never felt like a guest. I felt like family.”
– Amanda Krantz, high-risk mom and former guest

Touch of Home
With more guest families to serve, the need for home-cooked meals and wish list items is increasingly important to help support our day-to-day operations. You can help by organizing a group of your friends, family, neighbors or co-workers to collect and deliver “Wish List” items to our House, or prepare a home-cooked meal, on a scheduled day once a month for our guest families.
