Red Shoe Day is back and Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego is looking volunteers. Hundreds are needed on Thursday, June 20, to collect cash donations for the 10th annual fundraiser.
Red Shoe Day is the largest volunteer-driven fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities, raising nearly $250,000 in 2018.
This year, Red Shoe Day volunteers will be collecting cash donations from morning commuters from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at more than 200 intersections throughout the county. Individuals, businesses or groups looking to support their community by volunteering can sign up at RedShoeDaySD.com.
“This fundraiser would not be possible without the volunteers who give their time, talent and treasure to support the work of Ronald McDonald House,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities. “Red Shoe Day has seen incredible growth over the past 10 years, and we hope to see new volunteers this year! We would not be able to provide a home-away-from-home for thousands of families every year without the dedication of our community members.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities provides a range of services—including lodging, meals and emotional support—to families who have a critically-ill or injured child being treated at a San Diego-area hospital.
