The My New Red Shoes organization helps homeless and low-income kids look and feel confident by providing them with new shoes and clothes as they start  school. This year, 23 of our young people in Solano County received brand new shoes and a $50 gift card to Old Navy to purchase a new outfit for school. They young people were thrilled. Many thanks to My New Red Shoes.
