WHAT WE DO
Keeping families together while kids receive hospital treatment
In many communities and cultures, it is traditional for friends and neighbors to prepare meals for loved ones who are caring for a sick family member. For families who stay at Ronald McDonald Houses, they are often far away from family, friends and other support systems who would normally help them through a difficult time. Our compassionate volunteers fill this role, and provide home-cooked meals and freshly baked treats to our families.
Cooking meals is one of our most popular volunteer programs, and provides an opportunity for friends, families and co-workers to build a menu and a meal to share. Whether you want to cook a meal with your company, bake with your grandchild or make a financial gift that will cover the cost of a meal, there is no shortage of ways to help Ronald McDonald House families at our Portland and Bend Houses. To sign up to prepare a meal, fill out the form below. If you have other questions or want to learn more about how to get involved, contact Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-943-6673.
