Ocean Air Elementary students support San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House

For the second year in a row, Ocean Air Elementary School students joined the Red Shoe Crew to support families with children facing serious medical conditions at local hospitals. The Ocean Air Student Council members chose this community outreach effort to support their Peacebuilder Pledge to help others.

During the two-day event, students participated in activities to offer encouragement to families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. On the second day, Student Council members collected donations in Ronald’s size 14 red shoes during the morning drop-off. Through their incredible efforts, the student council was able to meet their goal to provide lodging and hot meals for families served by the House during the holidays.
