Welcome to the Long Branch House

The Ronald McDonald House in Long Branch, is located a block from Monmouth Medical Center. The House was founded in 1987 through a true community effort.

The late Ernie George, a local McDonald’s owner/operator and Long Branch Rotary member, had the vision. Jonathon Hoffman and Alexis Tucci of the Rotary Club of Long Branch, and Charles Blatchley, Dr. Howard Fox, Dorothy Davis and Arlene Mageary of Monmouth Medical Center, were intricately involved in developing the idea and making Ernie’s dream a reality. The House has continued to grow and be successful thanks to the incredible support of our local communities.
