Kids playing at the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House

Are you interested in making a difference in the lives of seriously ill children and their families? Consider becoming a volunteer!


you for your interest in becoming involved! The support of volunteers is crucial for maintaining our programs and services.

Out of concern for the health and safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers, we are currently taking measures to restrict the number of outside visitors to our facilities.

We are temporarily halting all on-site volunteer programs, including service projects and Meals of Love. If you would like to arrange the delivery of non-perishable food for our pantry, grocery gift cards or individually prepared meals for the families staying with us, please contact us for a list of local options.

If you or your group are interested in receiving information about future volunteer opportunities,
please fill out the form on our
Get Involved Page 


Thank you for your understanding and support.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with:

  • Happy Meals: It’s always a treat for our families to arrive back at the House after a long day to a home-cooked meal. Gather your office or community group and schedule a day to drop by a meal!
  • Arts and Crafts: If you have the time and talent, bring your crafting skills to the House to teach others. Scrapbooking, crochet, knitting, and other handicrafts are always in need.
  • Other activities: Want to help but not finding exactly what you’re looking for? Contact us and we will find a way for you to get involved!

If you are interested in getting involved or would like to know more, please click on the Get Involved button. We look forward to speaking with you!
