As an In-House Volunteer you can help meet the needs of the families using the Ronald McDonald House and assist with the day to day operations of the House by answering phones, registering families and doing light housekeeping.SAMSUNG

As a Family Room Volunteer you can greet families using the Ronald McDonald House Family Room inside Albany Medical Center as well as offer resources and a listening ear.

As a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile volunteer you can assist the dental team by walking students to and from the Care Mobile and their classrooms while providing the students encouragement while they wait for dental services.  Time commitment is dependent on volunteers schedule. Two hours a week is encouraged. The schools that are visited by the Care Mobile generally operate between the hours of 8:30am and 2:30PM.

All of our program volunteers are required to undergo an extensive back ground check as well as training for their specific roles.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Tina Woodward via email at or give her a call during regular business hours at 518-438-2655.

As a Meal Partner you can provide families in the House with a weekly, biweekly, monthly or occasional hot meal.  For the health and safety of our families we have adopted meal program guidelines that can be found here.  Additionally, groups often provide breakfast or bake goodies (cookies, brownies,etc) at the Ronald McDonald House.

Groups can help from the office by adopting a Ronald McDonald House family for the holidays or holding a wishlist drive to help stock the cupboards at the House and Family Room. Small groups can also help at the House by providing a meal for the families, providing baked goods for our families.

Groups interested in our meal program or volunteering as a group should contact Courtney LaBelle via email at or give her a call during regular business hours at 518-438-2655.
