Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, a podiatry office in Hillsborough and Piscataway, NJ is preparing to donate hundreds of used shoes they have collected over the last several months to the Salvation Army. Every year the office runs a shoe drive at each of their locations to collect shoes for those less fortunate and donates them to a worthy charity.
Shoes are so important to ones foot health, and sadly many people are wearing shoes with holes, shoes that are the wrong size, and shoes with little or no support at all, explains Dawn Lewis, Certified Pedorthist at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists. As a Pedorthist, a specialist in using footwear including shoes and shoe modifications to solve problems in the foot, Ms. Lewis solves many foot problems and ends chronic pain through proper footwear.
The office receives so much support from the community during their shoe drives. We have people come drop off garbage bags full of shoes, continues Dawn. It doesnt matter if you have one pair or 20 pairs, every bit helps! The shoe drive officially ends Wednesday night so if you have any shoes lying aroundplease drop them off at the addresses below!
The office collects shoes of all kinds including:
Adult dress shoes
Childrens athleitc shoes
