Parent volunteer Meredith Walsey shows Oak Knoll fifth-grader Axel Ljunggren how to sew a bag to be filled with shoes, clothing, and gift certificates, which will be distributed to low-income kids through the nonprofit My New Red Shoes. For two weeks earlier this month, the Oak Knoll School community made bags and cards, and collected new shoes in an effort organized by Ms. Walsey. The school also raised funds through a bake sale each afternoon. The nonproft was founded by Menlo Park resident Heather Hopkins.
