Thank You

My New Red Shoes was founded in 2006 to boost the self-confidence, quality of life, and educational experience of students in need. 

Since 2006, we have provided more than 70,000 students living in poverty with the basic necessities of new shoes and clothing while working to build a stronger, healthier and more inclusive community for all children through civic service and learning opportunities for volunteers of all ages.

By meeting student's basic clothing needs, and enhancing their developmental assets, we are helping to boost school attendance, classroom and social inclusion, and the self-esteem and confidence of our community's vulnerable children and youth.

Our 2019 Rock the Runway fundraiser raised over $125,000 to provide long term, year-round assistance with needed clothing and footwear to children of families experiencing economic hardship.
