TOPEKA, Kan., June 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- safeTstep, the business-to-business division of Payless ShoeSource, partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Greater Houston/ Galveston, Inc. earlier this month to promote the Extreme Weather Ready Expo, which drew more than 4,000 Houstonians preparing for the upcoming hurricane season.
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile provided free dental screening, medical checkups and immunizations. safeTstep also donated several pairs of shoes to give away during the event.
"The event was a huge success," said Karen LaFleur, Communications Director of RMHC of Greater Houston/Galveston, Inc. "It's great to see community healthcare leaders, local agencies and sponsors coming together to positively impact so many children and families."
"And don't forget that every time you visit a McDonald's restaurant, you can support RMHC programs by dropping spare change in an RMHC donation box at the pay-counter or drive-thru," said LaFleur.

Because all safeTstep styles are made with a patented slip-resistant tread and come with a 24/7 Comfort Insole™, they appeal to many individuals in non-work environments as well, for those safety and comfort features.
"safeTstep is all about safety," said Matt Lemke, Director, safeTstep, "which typically takes the form of safety in the workplace, such as a McDonald's restaurant. But in this case, we were thrilled to partner with RMHC of Greater Houston/Galveston to promote safety in the community."
