What it means to be a Long-Term Volunteer

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine is only able to continue operations in Maine with the robust support from our volunteers. Our volunteers make our Houses feel like a
“home-away-from-home.”

Volunteer positions that fall under “Long Term” are: House Volunteers, Overnight Volunteers, Errand Runners, and Maintenance Volunteers. All volunteers for these positions
must be over 18 and vaccinated for COVID-19.

We have some volunteers who have been with us for over 18 years, and while we don’t expect that commitment from everyone, we do want to cultivate volunteer relationships that are long-lasting! Volunteers must be able to commit to at least 6 months of service.
