In 1987, after his granddaughter Jessica Van Dyke died from Reye’s Syndrome, Van Dyke made a series of television commercials to raise public awareness of the danger to children. He is still the National Spokesman of the National Reye’s Syndrome Foundation.

For nearly 20 years Van Dyke has been committed to volunteering at Los Angeles’ century-old shelter, The Midnight Mission. He helped raise millions for their new building program and is there every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and times in between offering comfort and cheer. He is passionate about raising funds for music and art programs for public schools. In 2010, he was named the first spokesperson for the Cell Therapy Foundation.
