Group Volunteering Auckland

Our group volunteers play a significant role in helping to create a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families.

We have a range of opportunities available.

This option booklet includes detailed information about all the options as well as FAQs.

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.

Meals in Advance (Fridays fortnightly, 9.00am – 12.00pm)

Create simple meals that will then be frozen and provided to families to heat and eat. The recipes and ingredients are organized for you, so catering experience is not needed. Your team will prepare, cook and clean up – and it is all during business hours, so a great option for corporate groups. Suitable for groups of 5 – 15 people. There is a cost associated as your group pays for the food ingredients.

Baking (Saturdays fortnightly, 2.00pm – 5.00pm)

Get a group together to help with simple baking and cooking requirements in the kitchen. Each session will vary based on the food needs at the House on the day, but usually, this will involve baking a variety of yummy treats for the families. All recipes and ingredients are provided so all you need to do is gather your team of volunteers! Suitable for groups of 3 – 5 people. There are no extra costs associated with this session.

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 (every third 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.
