Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s Cookies from the Heart

Cookies from the Heart

Cookies from the HeartThere is nothing better than coming home to the smell of fresh baked cookies in the kitchen. The cookies you provide will be a comforting snack for the families that stay at our House as they come back to the House after a stressful day in the hospital. 


Cookies from the Heart volunteers work as a small group up to 10 people to plan their cookie treat, purchase the ingredients and bake in our full service kitchen. We typically ask that your group prepare 6 to 8 batches of the cookie you have decided to make. 


Find our Volunteer Parking Instructions here. 


Step 1: Visit our Online Calendar and choose three available dates. We can host Cookies from the Heart volunteers from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. everyday of the week.  Dates marked “Cookies from the Heart: OPEN” are available.


If a day or time is blank, that means that there are other activities going on in the House that preclude our hosting a baking group at that time. 


Step 2: Complete our “Cookies from the Heart” application below.
