Ronald McDonald House, Pasadena

We'll prepare lunch for the patients and/or residences of the Ronald McDonald House in Pasadena. I'll post a signup sheet later this week so each volunteer could sign up to bring an ingredient. We'll cook together 11am-12noon, serve the lunch 12noon-1pm and clean up. NOTE this facility has residences coming in and out often as their children are at various hospitals throughout the city and it's a smaller space than the one in LA. So you may not see a lot of residences but the ones you do see, please encourage their spirits!

We'll make soft tacos with a side of beans and Spanish rice. We'll also provide a side of fruit and salad. 

Please sign up!

Soft tacos (flour tortillas and corn tortillas)

Meat for filling (chicken and beef and fish perhaps?)

tomatoes, cabbage, onions, bell peppers

sour cream, shredded cheese, guacamole

Spanish rice

Cans of refried beans

Fruit (whatever is in season; we'll cut up there)

Salad --- Molly

This is my first time at this facility in Pasadena. I heard it's small so roughly speaking we'll cook for about 25 residents. Keep in mind they are in and out of the facility so we may or may not see the families. If not, we'll put the tacos in take-out boxes and refrigerate; they could pick up and take back to the hospitals whenever they get a break. 

Parking: It's a one-way street. I think you just park on the street. 

VOLUNTEERS: YOU ALL INSPIRE ME SO MUCH; THANKS FOR YOUR HEARTS AND HANDS! 

Blessings,

Molly

      Hi Molly,
      I was just wondering how would I be able to find out if Im would be off the wait list. Will I be receiving a notification? Please advise. Thank you! Happy Holidays!! : )

      December 19, 2013

    • Molly S.

      bells, I believe meetup just bumps the #1 waitlist person up to RSVP if someone at RSVP decides to bow out and then you are notified by email of your new RSVP. I think that's what happens. I'm sending an email out to all RSVPs right now to confirm they attendance. THANKS Bells. We'll have another event here very soon!! I'm trying to secure a date :)

  • Shari P.

    Hi Molly, We would love to help too!!! I am happy to cook whatever or big a big salad etc...

    1 · December 12, 2013

    • Molly S.

      Salad is great Shari. We also run out of meat first so if you want to dress it up with chicken or turkey it would be great but if you just had salad, that's fine too.

      December 12, 2013

  • Basil G S.

    I will be there.

  • Misha

    What do I need to bring? Also can I bring my children again?

    December 5, 2013

    • Molly S.

      Misha, yes please invite your children so long as no one is sick that day. I haven't put up the food menu yet but the director mentioned Mexican food would be appreciated so perhaps we'll be making tacos and burritos again OR try something new like enchiladas and tortilla soup??

  • Pat H.

    Will there be opportunities to sign up other months for this location!

    December 5, 2013

    • Molly S.

      YES we'll partner with them regularly!

      December 6, 2013

  • lisa k.

    Al, kids and I are very excited to join again!

    December 5, 2013

    • Molly S.

      Lisa I noticed the RSVP list is full and you and the family are on wait list. This location is much smaller than the one you were at in LA. I'm sorry. The director said more volunteers will be tough. I think if people on the RSVP cancel, it bumps up the waitlist volunteers. THANKS!!!
