Volunteer Information for Groups

Group Volunteers consist of groups of friends, families, corporations, civic or religious groups and lead an array of activities for the families of the Inland Empire House. Volunteering groups provide families with an opportunity of respite during a highly stressful time. 

 

Meal of Love

The meals you provide bring love into the House, allowing families to unwind, de-stress, and fortify their bodies to be at their best for their child in the hospital. Groups of up to 12 people choose a menu, purchase the ingredients, and prepare the meal in our full-service kitchen, allowing families to find nourishment and comfort in a shared meal. Breakfast is served daily at 9:00 am, dinner is served daily at 6:00 pm.

Qualifications: Show off your creativity and cooking skills (or just practice!). We supply the kitchen and equipment, your group just needs to bring the ingredients. All food must be prepared and cooked on site or brought directly from a commercial retail kitchen. Maximum of 12 volunteers, including chaperones.

Location: Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House

Commitment: Scheduled date to prepare a meal

Minimum Age: 14+ with adult supervision - 1 adult per 5 youth volunteers

By choosing to participate in this activity you will agree to a cancelation fee of $150.00. This fee will be charged if the meal is canceled within 48 hours of the meal and/or if the group does not show up for the meal without notifying the House prior to the meal.  Please review the following form for details.

Special Event Volunteer Information

Each year, hundreds of people support the Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House when they attend one of our special events. Volunteers play a pivotal role in making sure each event runs smoothly and our guests have an enjoyable experience. If it weren't for the volunteer help we receive, these events would not be possible. We welcome individual volunteers as well as groups. If you, your family, classmates or team are interested in making a difference, please consider helping at one of these special events:

  • A Few Good Men Gala
  • Car show
  • Walk For Kids
  • Pairing For a Purpose
  • Golf Tournaments

Volunteers are needed in the area of setup, registration, greeters, auction assistants, check-out, break down and more.

Cleaning Project

Many of our families are coming to us in a state of stress and anxiety. They deserve to be welcomed into a home that is clean and inviting. A cleaning project will help create that peace of mind for families as they are going through their time between the hospital and work.

Qualifications: Help our House feel more like a home! We supply the cleaning products, gloves, and tools needed to get the job done. Groups will clean communal spaces of the House, for example: inside, outside and around each floor (we have 3 floors!) but will not be asked to clean guest rooms.

Maximum of 15 volunteers, including chaperones.

  • Location: Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House
  • Commitment: Scheduled date to clean
  • Minimum Age: 12+ with adult supervision – 1 adult per 1 youth volunteer
