Ankle & Foot Care Centers Launches Annual Shoe Drive

BOARDMAN, Ohio (November 15, 2012) – Podiatric physicians and staff from Ankle & Foot Care Centers are urging the community to help the area’s less fortunate by donating new pairs of shoes.

The practice, with 18 locations throughout the Mahoning Valley, aims to collect more than 800 pairs of shoes between now and January 4, 2013. Shoe drive collection stations are now in place at each office, all of which are accepting new or nearly new shoes. All types of shoes are accepted, including both children’s and adult sizes, and styles ranging from casual to dress to athletic.

The Salvation Army will distribute the shoes to families in need throughout the Mahoning Valley.

“We’re blessed to receive strong participation in our shoe drive year after year from our employees, patients and friends, and it’s time once again to call on them to support this tremendous need,” said Michael Vallas, practice administrator at Ankle & Foot Care Centers.

“A new pair of quality, proper-fitting shoes for those who can’t afford it can benefit a person’s health and self-esteem, and we hope to make a significant impact with our donation this year.”

Ankle & Foot Care Centers’ annual shoe drive dates back to 1998.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region’s largest podiatric care provider, with 16 physicians and surgeons serving patients at 18 local offices, located in Alliance, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Lake Milton, Liberty, Niles, Poland, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown. Specific locations and other information are located on the group’s website, at www.ankleandfootcare.com.
