About

The average age of all homeless people in the United States is nine years old. How does My New Red Shoes help? My New Red Shoes has served over 45,000 homeless and low-income children and youth since 2006 and is now serving more than 10,000 annually.

We are in need of volunteers who are interested in hosting a virtual shoe drive in their school, community group, club, sports team, faith-based organization, friend/family circle, etc. It doesn't matter where you are located, as this shoe drive is completed primarily online via the My New Red Shoes Amazon Wish List. Advertise your shoe drive to your local community and direct them to donote shoes online. It's a simple way to get involved and give back!

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact us for more information and to obtain our Shoe Drive Kit which contains "how to" instructions, tips and tricks, a sample email, shoe guidlines, flyers, our online wishlist and even thank you letters for your donors! Set a goal to collect 10, 20, 50, or more shoes and get your community involved!
