Rotary learns about the Red Shoe Society
The North Baltimore Rotary Club met on July 15th. Ryan Delaney, the new Superintendent of Schools, was a guest.
Mary Hinkelman from McDonald’s gave the program on The Red Shoe Society. Their mission is to inspire, empower and engage young leadership in the philanthropic efforts of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio and to advance the Ronald McDonald House charities mission.
Their goal is to increase awareness through a social media presence. They sponsor meet and greet events at Ronald McDonald House during the year. They participate in various volunteer opportunities throughout the year and encourage community participation in House activities and volunteer opportunities.
Their fundraising efforts include collected donations at Red Shoe Society hosted events, Annual Tug-A-Truck, Monthly Happy Feet Happy Hour Series and After Party following the annual Heartwarming Party. You can also donate at McDonald’s Restaurants. They are collecting aluminum can tabs as a fundraising activity. You can bring can tabs to McDonalds and Mary will pick them up.
Mary also reported on the new Ronald McDonald House that is being built across from the existing house. The new house will have 28 beds all on one floor. For more information you can e-mail Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Red Shoe Society, Bowling Green and Beyond’s Facebook page.
