WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED
These bags can be completed by a child, teen, family, class, Scout Troop, or any other group of kids. Some adult assistance may be needed for young kids or first-time sewers.
HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Sewing gift bags is a fun, hands-on volunteer project for an individual or group of children or adults. The time, love and effort you put into these bags make a big difference to the children we serve - and to their families. The hand-sewn, personalized bags lets them know someone in their community cares.
Each pair of shoes and clothing gift card My New Red Shoes provides is packaged in a hand-sewn bag or pillowcase personalized by the volunteer who made it. We will need thousands of bags each year, so we'd love your help!
