How to Help
Although our Long Branch and New Brunswick Houses are licensed by Ronald McDonald House Charities, they are run autonomously by a local Board of Trustees, staff and volunteers.
They operate through the generous support of area businesses, organizations, civic groups, schools and individuals, as well as through fundraising and special events.
There are many ways to help us continue our mission of making a difference for families during a time of crisis. Our needs range from having additional volunteers to providing wish list items, donations or fundraising assistance. However you support us, you can rest assured that you are making a difficult time a little easier for a family with a seriously ill child.

The Ronald McDonald House relies heavily on the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations. Donations help us to provide comfort and care to seriously ill children and their families, making an immediate, positive impact on those who need our assistance the most.
Our caring volunteers are truly the “heart” of the “House that Love Built.” Individual and group volunteers assist with a variety of roles, from cooking dinners or gardening to assisting in the office. In addition, they have the satisfaction of knowing that their time and energy directly benefit families with seriously ill children. » Volunteer Now
You can help our families by purchasing items on our Long Branch wish list or New Brunswick wish list and dropping them off at the House.
Pop Tab Collection
Collect aluminum pop tabs for recycling. We receive money for every pound of aluminum can tab tops collected and brought to the House for recycling (the amount we receive depends on market activity). It’s a great way for children, schools, offices and other organizations to support the Ronald McDonald House.
