House Charities® Of San Diego Hosts Annual Red Shoe Day Fundraiser
The County’s Liveliest Fundraiser Takes Place June 26
SAN DIEGO – June 5, 2014 – Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego encourages the San Diego community to look for volunteers at major intersections on Red Shoe Day, June 26, and donate cash that will help families in medical crisis.
Roughly 1,500 volunteers donning festive attire, toting signs and carrying iconic red shoes will be stationed at major roadside intersections hollering for donations during the morning commute from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Cash collected goes to San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home away from home for families with a critically ill or injured child being treated at a local hospital.
Residents who don’t pass through one of the intersections manned with volunteers on June 26 can support San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House by donating online. Visit www.RMHCSD.org to make a donation or to set up a personal fundraising page to collect donations from friends and family. Some Red Shoe Day volunteer opportunities may still be available – visit www.RMHCD.org/RedShoeDay to sign up.
More than 12,500 family members visit the Ronald McDonald House each year to receive meals, lodging and other supportive services. The respite provided by the Ronald McDonald House enables families suffering medical crises to focus their energy on helping their sick or injured child heal.
