Bruins for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) was created for UCLA students who are passionate about philanthropy and service to join the fight against pediatric cancer. Our organization works closely with the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House and Camp Ronald McDonald. Members plan and organize monthly visits to the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, a program that provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. In addition to hosting activities for children and their families to enjoy together, we volunteer in any way we can to keep the House on its feet. We also fundraise to pay for families who cannot afford the cost to stay at the house, which is $25 per night.
Camp Ronald McDonald is a place where children, who have had their lives devastated by childhood cancer, can recapture what being a child is supposed to be. Our organization assists with recruitment of new camp counselors in addition to fundraising for needed supplies and the construction of improved facilities. Bruins for Ronald McDonald House Charities strives to continue the work of Ronald McDonald Houses and Camp Ronald McDonald in bringing hope and faith to the lives of children and families affected by pediatric cancer.
