Volunteers


Volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of all families who come through our doors! Our volunteers help give families time by freeing them up to concentrate on their child.

Volunteers are the backbone of RMHC Wichita and save us thousands of dollars in general and administrative costs per year, while providing much needed support to our families.  There are numerous opportunities for individuals or groups to volunteer for Ronald McDonald House Charities Wichita.
