Happy Volunteer Appreciation Week!

2021 Volunteer Appreciation Week

April 19th, 2021

Happy Volunteer Appreciation Week! The Ronald McDonald House® (RMHC®) is so grateful for our 550+ volunteers. Whether they’re taking on the role of a Van Driver, Office Assistant, Hospitality Volunteer or Kitchen Keeper just to name a few, each volunteer wholeheartedly embraces their volunteer shift, all with the same motivation in mind – our families. Our volunteers work hard to make sure our families have what they need throughout their stay at RMHC and ensure that our House truly feels like a home away from home.

Each volunteer role takes on various responsibilities, whether it’s managing the front office and greeting those who enter the House, cleaning and keeping common spaces organized, making up guest rooms, transporting families to and from the hospital or grocery store, giving our Secret Garden some love, or being sure our kitchens are cleaned and stocked. Our volunteer base is comprised of high school students, college students that come back to volunteer over their school breaks, husbands and wives, those who are spending their retirement giving back – the list goes on. Regardless of the volunteer’s role, they each go above and beyond to ensure our guest families feel at home.

So many of our volunteers build friendships with those on their shift and are inspired by those they meet throughout their time serving at RMHC. Our volunteers are selfless, encouraging, resilient, eager, passionate, dedicated and caring. To see the ways that our volunteers support one another, in addition to our families, is inspiring.

Throughout the pandemic, RMHC® Eastern WI has kept its doors open and we were happy to welcome back some of our volunteers in a limited capacity once it was deemed safe to do so. While we still don’t have a timeline for opening up all volunteer roles, we are so grateful for the unwavering support that our volunteers continue to provide us. Whether it’s sending a note to let us know they’re thinking about us or asking about what more they can do to provide a welcoming environment for our families, our volunteers embody compassionate care.

Thank you, RMHC volunteers, for all that you do each and every time you walk into the House! Your dedication to our House and to our families never goes unnoticed.

-Heather Egerer and Olivia Kresse, RMHC Eastern WI Volunteer Services Team
