Red Shoe Society
We support the children, families, staff, volunteers and donors of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tallahassee. Our Mission is to engage, empower and inspire community members to participate in philanthropic and leadership endeavors and build awareness of the Ronald McDonald House. To be an organization of dedicated community members to supporting the needs of The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tallahassee by taking part in hands-on volunteer opportunities and fund raising efforts, serving in a leadership capacity, and providing various networking possibilities.
What we are about:
We are members of the community dedicated to supporting the purpose of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tallahassee, Inc. (RMHC) RMHC offers a “home away from home” for families with children facing medical challenges and providing them a nurturing atmosphere of love, strength, comfort, hope and courage. As Red Shoe Society members, we support RMHC’s belief that when you change a child’s life, you change a family, which can change a community, and ultimately, the world.
As members, we work together to raise awareness and funds for the House through a variety of social and volunteer activities. We strive to create a fun and welcoming atmosphere where emerging leaders can network with other community-minded young professionals while making a difference in the lives of those served by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tallahassee. We volunteer at the House, which provides us, as Red Shoe Society members, a unique opportunity to interact and connect with the families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House. Also, to continue in our fund raising efforts, we organize social events throughout the year to develop awareness among the community. Being that we are the Red Shoe Society, our members stand out by sporting signature red shoes to meetings, activities, and events. This is our creative approach to making a footprint in our community!
While we hope to have plenty of events and volunteer opportunities to attend throughout the year, we are also looking for members to serve on our committees.
