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! If your troop hosts a shoe drive please complete and submit this form.
Host a Fabric Drive My New Red Shoes is always in need of fabric to sew our gift bags. My New Red Shoes accepts donations of cotton or poly blend fabric that is at least 1 yard long. We do not like to give fabric that is related to holidays, since we distribute the bags during the back-to-school season.
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.
If your troop volunteers with us and donates fabric, gift bags or first day cards, please submit this form.
