Volunteer Groups

SITE Centers meal deliveryVolunteer groups help make the House a home, providing meals, entertainment and activities. In 2021, even with COVID-19 limitations, we served 38,604 safely-prepared lunches and dinners, daily continental breakfast and 24/7 self-serve snacks and beverages. 

With ever-changing circumstances, your contributions of financial support, supplies and catered meals have been critical to our family meal program. Simply put, we could not give our families this level of service without your generosity and commitment. If you are able, we are still in need of monetary donations to help provide meals to our families.

We’re excited to welcome volunteer groups back, with new guidelines, into our Akron and Cleveland House programs!

We are in need of:

  • Groups of two to six adults to provide and prepare dinners for families staying at the House.
  • Two-person teams each Wednesday morning to provide and pack lunches for delivery to families at Akron Children’s Hospital.

For more information, please contact our Akron House Volunteer Manager, Jenny Fowler, at jfowler@rmhcneo.org or 330.253.5400

* For the continued safety of our guests, volunteers and staff, we’ve implemented new guidelines, including COVID-19 protocols, which must be followed at all times. All volunteers are required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

Family Meal Program and Boxed Lunches

The meals we serve at our Cleveland House remove a huge financial burden from our families, and take away the stress of having to figure out what, when and where to eat in an unfamiliar place. This is more important than ever, enabling families with medically fragile children to limit their exposure to COVID-19.

Now, in addition to providing daily meals for our Ronald McDonald House guests, we are preparing fresh and nutritious boxed lunches in our House kitchen and delivering them to families at our four hospital-based Family Room programs.

We are accepting groups back on a limited basis. While we transition, contributions to our meal program are still greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!

For more information, please contact our Senior Family Meal Program Manager, Scott Lovasz at slovasz@RMHCneo.org.

I want to let you know how grateful my husband and I are for the Boxed Lunch program… We have a child with cancer who is on a long inpatient stay… We also have two children at home and a baby due to arrive mid-September… Being able to quickly step away to grab lunch without a long walk, a long line, or a large bill is a blessing. Thank you so much for feeding us while we support our son through his treatment.”
