Volunteer for the Orange County Ronald McDonald House

Are you interested in volunteering for the Orange County 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 Johanna Stickles, our Volunteer Manager
