Ankle & Foot Care Centers announced their 21st annual holiday shoe and sock drive on Tuesday.

According to a news release, they have a 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, surgeons and staff are collecting new or nearly new shoes and new socks at all 20 offices in Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, Stark, Ashtabula, and Portage Counties in Ohio and Mercer County in Pennsylvania through Friday, January 4.

The annual drive has taken place since 1998 and collected thousands of shoes and socks since then.

"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 news release said that 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.
