About Red Shoe Day of Giving

As of Monday, March 23rd, Red Shoe Day is still scheduled to take place. However we are continually monitoring the situation and will provide updates on any changes here and through email.

Why Participate?

Red Shoe Day of Giving is a fun way to join together with friends, family and co-workers and help families in our community. Your efforts to collect donations supports San Diego's Ronald McDonald House mission to provide warm meals, hot showers, and a comforting place for families to stay when their child is in the hospital. 

Whether a family is staying in one of the 56 guest rooms or coming over during the day to use the House services, the Ronald McDonald House is available to ease their burdens. 

All of the money collected for Red Shoe Day of Giving stays in San Diego to support families here.
