BOARDMAN, Ohio (December 1, 2016) - Ankle & Foot Care Centers today launched its 19th annual holiday shoe and sock drive with the goal of delivering 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 its offices in Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, Stark, Ashtabula and Portage counties in Ohio and Mercer County in Pennsylvania through Friday, Jan. 6.
The annual drive has collected thousands of shoes and socks since it began in 1998.
"The importance of having good shoes and socks, especially during the winter months, can't be downplayed in promoting healthy feet and overall good health,' said Michael Vallas, practice administrator at Ankle & Foot Care Centers. "Our doctors and staff are committed during this holiday season to equipping families in need with adequate footwear for all ages.'
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.
