Volunteer Opportunities

Become A Volunteer

There are many ways to get involved with RMHC Arkansas & North Louisiana. In 2023, we had over 1,700 volunteers donate 9,100 hours of their time to do everything from work events to organizing donations to ensure families can continue to stay together and have everything they need while their child undergoes treatment in a local hospital. You can volunteer in the House, Family Room, events, cooking meals, and so much more! Fill out the form linked below and we will contact you.

IMPORTANT: Submitting an application is based on availability and does not guarantee a spot. Per guidelines, we are unable to accept volunteers who need court-appointed service hours.

Meals from the Heart

Meals from the Heart offers individuals and small groups (up to 10 people at a time) an opportunity to provide freshly prepared meals to families at the Ronald McDonald House in Little Rock and Ronald McDonald House Shreveport-Bossier (opening May 2025). Through this program, volunteers provide meals for families allowing them to eat together without the stress of cooking or the expense of dining out.

Collect Pop Tabs

Pop tabs can be collected by anyone, but school administrators, teachers, and students have long been the lifeblood of this effort. Collecting pop tabs is a wonderful way to teach kids about recycling and philanthropy and it helps families at Ronald McDonald House. If you’re collecting, be sure to keep pop tabs in a container with a large opening so they can be removed for recycling and then drop off at Ronald McDonald House Arkansas or Ronald McDonald House Shreveport-Bossier (opening May 2025). Schools can get involved with Pop Tab Pandemonium by contacting erica@rmhcar-nla.org.

Wish Lists

You can always view our wish lists at the link or shop from our Amazon lists to have items delivered directly to the House. Be sure to watch social media for wish list Wednesday for our most urgent needs. What items can you help provide for our families?

Red Show Crew

The mission of the Red Shoe Crew is to engage, empower, and inspire individuals to build awareness and expand the circle of friends for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas & North Louisiana

Well-Being Salon

If you are a licensed hair stylist, we hope you will volunteer to help families in the Well-Being Salon at Ronald McDonald House Arkansas. Because of stylists like you, men, women, and children staying in the House can get a fresh cut or style.

Host a Fundraiser

We rely on community support from third-party fundraisers to complete our mission. A group or individual can host an event or sponsor an activity where RMHCAR-NLA is the beneficiary.

Vehicle Donations

Your old vehicle can help a family stay close to their sick child.
Donate a vehicle and the funds raised will support families with sick children at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas & North Louisiana.
