Volunteers sought for Red Shoe Day

(Red Shoe Day this year is October 16)….However, organizers are signing up volunteers now.

For the last couple years Imperial Valley has participated in Red Shoe Day, to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House in San Diego. It is estimated that around 20 % percent of the families that use Ronald McDonald House are from the Imperial County. The Ronald McDonald House provides comfortable accommodations to families whose child is being treated at a San Diego area hospital. Last year over $36,000 was raised in Imperial County. Those who register to participate now are able to pick their choice of any one of the 13 designated intersections around the County. Volunteers stand at the intersection and entice motorists to drop their spare dollars and change in a red shoe. They are encouraged to have fun by singing, dancing, dressing up in silly costumes or pretty much anything to motivate donations.
