Ankle & Foot Care Centers Launches ’07 Shoe Drive, Urges Shoppers to Kick In With New Shoes for Kids

BOARDMAN, Ohio (November 28, 2007) – Podiatrists with Ankle & Foot Care Centers are urging holiday shoppers to pick up an extra pair of shoes for a needy child this season.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers, a group of 15 local podiatric physicians and surgeons, today announced the start of its 2007 shoe drive and hopes to collect more than 800 pairs of shoes between now and January 11, 2008.

Shoe collection stations are now in place at each of the group’s 19 locations throughout the region, all of which are accepting new or nearly new shoes.

“New shoes can make a positive, long-lasting impact on the well-being of a child whose family cannot them,” said Michael Vallas, practice administrator at Ankle & Foot Care Centers.

“Healthy feet are important to a child’s development. Yet many families have to skimp on new shoes to pay more critical bills. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the Salvation Army every year since 2003 to help local shoppers donate over 800 pairs of new and nearly shoes a year.”

In February, the Salvation Army will distribute the shoes donated through Ankle & Foot Care Centers to children throughout Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

Jean Malandro, director of social services for the Mahoning County Salvation Army, encouraged local shoppers to get involved.

“The need is greater than people realize, and the Salvation Army cannot meet it alone,” Malandro said. “Ankle & Foot Care Centers provides a big boost by enabling shoppers to donate new or nearly new shoes through any of its offices.”

Ankle & Foot Care Centers’ 20 offices are located in Alliance, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Howland, Kinsman, Lake Milton, Liberty, Niles, Poland, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown. Specific locations can be located on the group’s website, at www.ankleandfootcare.com.
