Ankle & Foot Care Centers Calls on Community to Help Provide Footwear for Local Families in Need

BOARDMAN, Ohio (December 1, 2011) – Podiatric physicians and surgeons with Ankle & Foot Care Centers are urging holiday shoppers to help the area’s less fortunate by buying and donating new pairs of shoes.

The doctors aim to collect more than 800 pairs of shoes between now and January 6. Shoe collection stations are now in place at each of the group’s 19 Mahoning Valley locations, all of which are accepting new or nearly new shoes. In greatest demand are children’s shoes of all types and casual, all-purpose shoes in adult sizes for both men and women.

“Many families in our own communities are unable to provide decent footwear for themselves or their children,” said Michael Vallas, practice administrator at Ankle & Foot Care Centers.

Improper footwear is not only a concern to overall foot health, but receiving a new pair of shoes can really be a boost to one’s self-esteem. We’re confident the generous people in our community can help us exceed our goal.”

Since 1998, Ankle & Foot Care Centers has helped local shoppers donate thousands of pairs of shoes to local needy families. Ankle & Foot Care Centers works with the Salvation Army, who in February will distribute the shoes collected this year to individuals throughout Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region’s largest podiatric care provider, with 16 physicians and surgeons serving patients at 19 local offices, located in Alliance, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Howland, 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.
