HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Sewing gift bags is a fun, hands-on volunteer project for a 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 gift bag hand-sewn and personalized by a volunteer. Serving more than 10,000 children this year means we will need more than 10,000 gift bags, so we are in great need of your help!
