Together with your help, let’s make a difference in the lives of all Imperial Valley families who need to stay at San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House.
Thursday, October 17, 2019 • 7:00AM – 10:00AM • Across Imperial County
Red Shoe Day is back for a ninth great year! On the morning of October 17th, 700 volunteers will be singing, dancing, and collecting donations from commuters at key intersections throughout the Imperial Valley. All proceeds collected during the morning drive time, will directly benefit these Imperial Valley families who turn to our Ronald McDonald House for a place of comfort, care, and compassion while a child of theirs is undergoing treatment in a San Diego Hospital.
Sign up as an individual, or even better, recruit a team of family, friends, teammates or coworkers!
