Ankle & Foot Care Centers Launches Annual Shoe & Sock Drive

BOARDMAN, Ohio (December 4, 2018) - Ankle & Foot Care Centers today announced its 21st annual holiday shoe and sock drive with the goal of delivering more than 500 pairs of shoes and hundreds of pairs of socks to local residents through the Salvation Army.

The group of foot and ankle physicians and surgeons 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, January 4, 2019.

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

"One of the most important aspects of foot care is having proper shoes and socks to protect the feet," said Michael Vallas, practice administrator. "Every year, our doctors, staff, patients and individuals in our community make it a priority to support families in need by donating footwear for people of 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. New 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.


Doctors and staff from Ankle & Foot Care Centers are hoping to collect hundreds of pairs of shoes and socks for their 21st annual holiday shoe drive. Pictured from left are Dr. Mark Smesko, Sarah Jane Smith and Tara Wiley at our East Liverpool office.
