Volunteers make the difference for families and children.

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Toronto runs in large part because of the commitment and compassion of our more than 500 volunteers.

Why volunteer

Make a difference in the lives of the families we serve.

Learn new things, develop your skills, and express your passion.

Receive support from a strong volunteer resources team.

As a volunteer, you are a key member of the RMHC Toronto team. To ensure we’re providing the best possible experience for our volunteers, we follow The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement.
