Levine JCC Cares
The Levine JCC wants to engage its members in a variety of social action programs within the community. Under the banner of LJCC Cares, we will bring our community together to perform Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Gemilut Hasadim (acts of loving kindness). Through LJCC Cares, we will provide opportunities for families, seniors, young adults and teens to serve the greater Charlotte community in ways that connect us with others and are motivated by the pressing issues of the day.

Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte is to provide the families of children being treated in area medical facilities with a safe, affordable and caring “home away from home.” It primarily serves families in the Southeast who travel a significant distance to receive specialized medical care at Levine Children’s Hospital and Hemby Children’s Hospital. The doors of the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte will always be open to families from across our region and beyond. Sign-ups are limited; must be at least 12 years old. Sign up by clicking on the Sign Up Genius link below.
Meal Preparation teams plan a menu, purchase supplies and then come into the house to prepare a home-cooked meal for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Each person who volunteers will be asked to donate towards the cost of the groceries. Volunteers must arrive at RMH by 4:30 to prepare for dinner to be served at 5:30 pm.
