Uplifting Way to Volunteer During the Holidays

Each year the Kiwanis Club of Los Rancheros coordinates decorating the two San Diego Ronald McDonald Houses for Christmas. This event starts the week of Thanksgiving, with moving the decorations from storage, organizing, and preparing for the big day. The Saturday after Thanksgiving volunteers arrive from Key Clubs, Churches, and other Kiwanis Clubs to spend a day creating a Christmas wonderland for the families and children staying in the two Ronald McDonald Houses. After Christmas, another Saturday of volunteers take the decorations down, boxes them up, and return them to storage. This is an amazing event with over 200 people working together. The Los Rancheros Kiwanis Club has been in charge of this event since 2004 when the first house in San Diego was built. In 2009, when the new larger house was opened, they added that to the decoration list. Luckily, the Kiwanis Club of Poway has since joined Los Rancheros Kiwanis in the decorating festivities at the San Diego Ronald McDonald Houses. You too can join in the holiday fun! If you would like to volunteer, please contact Julie Sleeper at jsleepersd@gmail.com or phone (858) 945-1979.
