My New Red Shoes helps thousands of homeless children at a critically important time in their lives. It is amazing how quickly they have grown and how many people are involved. I think this is because people instantly "get it" as to how important a service MNRS provides.

My New Red Shoes is a wonderful organization that is focused on providing shoes and clothing for homeless children in the Bay Area as well as getting the community at large, especially youth, engaged in both understanding the issues or homeless children and helping to do something to make their lives better. It's a wonderful grass roots organization with a huge inpact!

I've worked with My New Red Shoes for the past three years. The passion and commitment of the agency, its staff, and volunteers is truly remarkable. Growing out of a simple idea to offer homeless children the dignity they deserve on the first day of school, the organization impacts thousands of youth in our community. I am proud to be a part of this amazing organization.

the work they do every day. I have been at shelters where kids receive the clothing gift cards. The look on their face at that moment really can't be expressed in metrics or words.

My New Red Shoes truly impacts the lives of homeless children in the Bay Area in a positive way. These children are at a critical point in their lives and entering school with brand new shoes and clothes allows these children to feel confident and ready to learn. The volunteer and educational opportunities created by My New Red Shoes allow families and students to learn about how they can be advocates for change.

This wonderful organization has provided a beautiful message to the young girls that participate in our program, Youth and Family Enrichment Services, G.I.R.L.S Program, servicing San Mateo County, that they have value and significance to the community, regardless of the economic, racial, and ethnic challenges that they face. YFES' serves the most disenfranchised population in SMC, and My New Red Shoes supports our message that each participant is unique, with special gifts to be celebrated!

I am excited to see the impact My New Red Shoes has on homeless children. This organization is truly making a difference in the lives of so many children. Not only do the children benefit but so do their families. Parents of children who receive the new clothes and shoes describe not only the positive impact it makes on the children but how it relieves their worries and pressure of not being able to provide for them.

I work for a large Bay Area non-profit on the Peninsula, and our organization serves families at risk for abuse and neglect. We often have clients with young children who are homeless, so gathering the resources to purchase clothing for school is sometimes a very daunting task. My New Red Shoes fills the gap in our community by providing the opportunity for these children to feel confident and proud when they walk through the doors on the first day of school. Our experiences with the organization, both this year and last, have been wonderful!

The Great!

that they delivered on their promises and helped us to serve so many families in San Mateo county.
