How to volunteer with My New Red Shoes!
Host a Shoe Drive Collect brand new, athletic style shoes for homeless children. Set up a collection through your school or office, with your friends and neighbors. An individual can also host a shoe drive. We'll provide you with our shoe drive kit and support along the way!
Host a Fabric or "Something Special" Drive My New Red Shoes is always in need of fabric to sew our gift bags. Or host a "something special" drive! What is something special? In previous years it has included small items such as pencils, erasers, calculators, colored pencils, hair tie's etc.
Sew Gift Bags Each child My New Red Shoes serves receives a gift of new shoes in a colorful, hand sewn bag made by a volunteer! This simple, hands-on project is great for both children and adults.
Create a Back-to-School Card Hand-decorated cards offering messages of encouragement are also added to gift bags along with shoes and clothing gift cards.
On-Site Volunteer Opportunities Help us sort, organize and count gift bags, shoes and first day cards in our community engagement room! While the majority of our packing and distribution events take place during the summer, we occasionally have opportunities for on-site volunteering throughout the year.
