Ronald McDonald House

We need Groups that would like to come a cook dinner for our families. This is the perfect opportunity for your business, organization or church group to spend a couple of hours giving our families a warm meal.

The group brings the ingredients and prepares the dinner for our families. Our meals are served at 7pm and are buffet style. It is a wonderful opportunity to interact with our families.

God’s Pantry

Every Thursday evening from 6 - 9 p.m., we will host volunteers (age 8+) in our food sorting area.

We sort food drive donations before they are delivered to our five emergency food pantries in Lexington. If food drive donations are low, we will provide another activity suitable for younger volunteers. We can accept no more than 40 volunteers each Thursday.

All volunteers must be present when the shift begins promptly at 6 p.m. You are free to leave at the most convenient time for you, though we hope you'll stay until at least 7:30 p.m.
Saturdays 9-3
