2021 Red Shoe Crew

I’m thrilled to partner with the Ronald McDonald House. Their mission of helping patients and their families as they face big medical battles is one that I’m passionate about as a mother and a community leader. Skanska is a committed partner ensuring we make a difference in the lives of those that need it most. Sometimes, that means a good meal and a place of rest for parents as they support their children.

Thanks to all our Red Shoe Crew members for stepping up in leadership for RMH!
