Family Dinners (Monday – Thursday, 3.00pm – 8.00pm)
A rewarding team volunteering experience – you will be cooking dinner for 100+ people – so expect a fast-paced afternoon. Your team will cook, serve dinner and clean up whilst getting to interact with families and having dinner yourselves. Suitable for groups of 5 – 12 people (dependent on the House). There is a cost associated as your group pays for the food ingredients. Please refer to the options booklet for more details on group size and costs.
Please note: Any Family Dinner booking cancelled within 48 hours of your confirmed date will be forfeited and non-refundable. Ingredients will already have been purchased, and meals will need to be provided to families.
Working Bee (Fridays fortnightly, 10.00am – 2.00pm)
If you are up for anything that will be helpful to the families this is the option for you. Your activity will be determined the week you volunteer based on needs in the House. From outside maintenance jobs like water blasting, to moving furniture, to sorting donated goods, and helping with fundraising event preparations. Suitable for groups of 4 – 6 people. There is no extra cost associated with this session.
Family Bag Packing (Thursdays or as needed, 10.00am – 1.00pm)
If you have a small group and you are looking for an activity that does not involve cooking, this is another good option to consider. You will be helping with packing goodie bags for families arriving and leaving the Ronald McDonald House. They are a little something to brighten the day of a family away from home with a child in hospital. Suitable for groups of 3 – 4 people. There are no extra costs associated with this session.
