Our Story
 

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.

Over the last 10 years, our Fashion Show Fundraiser has raised more than $800,000 in support of our mission.

Nida Khalil

“I am here to tell you that we can create the world we want for ourselves and all of our children -- change is possible -- but we need to unite, we need to hold one another up, we need to support each other, we need to leave doors ajar for others to follow. And there are so many ways to do this! You can donate money or resources, go volunteer, talk to others, about these opportunities, empathize with the struggles of others, donate to amazing organizations like My New Red Shoes, and most importantly, be fully aware of your impact in this world, because the families you help are fully aware of the impact you bring into their lives.”

Nida is the Family Resources Coordinator at Bret Harte Middle School in the Oakland Unified School District, where she assists newcomer families in registering their children in school, finding needed resources (food, shelter, clothing, etc.), and supports non-English, Arabic-speaking families navigate the school system.

Nida is an avid social justice advocate and volunteers with several Bay Area non-profit social justice organizations. She was recently awarded the 2018 "Local Hero Award" by the City of Oakland, CA.
