BOARDMAN, Ohio (January 14, 2015) – More than 500 pairs of new shoes will be distributed to needy Valley families this February thanks to a recent shoe drive led by Ankle & Foot Care Centers.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers, which operates 19 local foot care offices in northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania, provided the footwear recently to the Salvation Army for distribution to families in Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

The new and nearly shoes were donated by patients, employees and podiatrists from late November to mid-January. The practice also collected new socks as part of this year’s event.

“We believe having access to proper footwear is a basic need and are happy to partner with the Salvation Army to make sure local families have shoes this year,” said Michael Vallas, practice administrator at Ankle & Foot Care Centers. “Providing footwear and foot care are both very important to our practice. We’d like to thank the community for its continued support of our annual shoe drive.”

Since 1998, Ankle & Foot Care Centers has helped local shoppers donate thousands of pairs of shoes to local families who otherwise couldn’t afford proper footwear.

“We are very appreciative of Ankle & Foot Care’s generous donation again this year,” said Major Elijah Kahn, area coordinator for the Salvation Army. “We share a passion for serving the community and are proud to work with like-minded organizations. Thanks to Ankle & Foot, families in our community will have the footwear they need to keep their feet safe and warm this winter.”

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region's largest podiatric care provider, with physicians and surgeons serving patients at 19 local offices, located in Alliance, Andover, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, Cornersburg, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Liberty, Niles, Poland, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown. Specific locations and other information are located on the group's website, at www.ankleandfootcare.com.
