Ankle & Foot Care Centers Launches 18th Annual Holiday Shoe & Sock Drive

BOARDMAN, Ohio (Dec. 11, 2015) – Ankle & Foot Care Centers today announced the launch of its 18th annual holiday shoe and sock drive and hopes to deliver more than 700 pairs of shoes and hundreds of pairs of socks to local residents through the Salvation Army early next year.

The podiatric physician group and its staff are collecting new or nearly new shoes and new socks at all 20 of their offices in Youngstown, Boardman, Poland, Austintown and throughout northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania through Friday, Jan. 8.

The annual drive has collected thousands of shoes and socks since it began in 1998.

"Good shoes and socks are important to healthy feet and overall good health, especially in cold weather," said Michael Vallas, practice administrator at Ankle & Foot Care Centers. "We’re looking to bring holiday cheer – and better health -- to families who are struggling financially and trying to get by with shoes that are wearing out or no longer fit."

The drive accepts shoes from children’s sizes to adult, both men and women, and all types of shoes from athletic to dress to casual. Boots in children’s sizes are especially needed. Socks of all sizes are accepted as well.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region's largest podiatric care provider, with physicians and surgeons serving patients at 20 local offices, located in Alliance, Andover, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, Cornersburg, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Liberty, Niles, Poland, Ravenna, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown. Specific locations and other information are located on the group's website, at www.ankleandfootcare.com.
