VolunteeringThank you for your interest in volunteering at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House! We need volunteers to assist with every aspect of life at our House, including cleaning, office work, gardening, organizing and special events. We have opportunities for individuals and groups to assist us seven days a week.
Regular volunteers must be 14 years of age or older. We allow children under the age of 14 to volunteer with groups and families as long as they are chaperoned by a parent or guardian.
In order to become a new volunteer, we ask that you attend one of our volunteer information sessions. The session lasts about an hour and covers the services provided at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House, what volunteer tasks we have to offer, our special events, and a House tour. Information sessions are normally held the first Monday of the month, 6pm at the House.
