Volunteer for the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House


Thank 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 email Claudia Dodson, our Volunteer Manager

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House— our valued volunteers help us help families stay together! Volunteers are crucial in creating and maintaining a comfortable home-away-from-home for families caring for critically ill children. Throughout the year, we rely on hundreds of volunteers in a variety of capacities, such as one-time group volunteer activities; volunteers who help staff special House events; and our small army of regular volunteers who help support day-to-day House operations and projects. Chances are, you will find a volunteer opportunity that fits your time commitment, availability, abilities, and schedule.
