Your Shoes Matter! How YOU Can Help The Victims In Japan

Help us and Soles4Souls in aiding the victims in Japan by donating your shoes! 


Everyone can help! Everyone has at least one pair of shoes that they don’t want, don’t wear anymore, or don’t fit anymore…so why not do your spring cleaning ealry and donate those shoes?! For those of you in Southern California, you can drop off your shoe donations in our office lobby in El Monte, CA. For everyone else, you can find your nearest Soles4Souls drop-off location in your community by clicking here. Another option is Sport Chalet as an official drop-off lcoation too!


If you don’t have shoes to donate, consider donating money for a good cause! One dollar = one pair of shoes. Click here for more information.

One last note: As a podiatrist and shoe expert, this cause is dear to my heart. Please consider donating shoes or money to help these victims. Can you imagine not having shoes in a time of need? And throughout the year, we will continue our shoe drive to help as many as we can. I am proud to say that since the earthquake in Japan earlier this month, our office has collected over 250 pairs of shoes which have been boxed and shipped to Soles4Souls by myself and my office staff. So a big


 to all of our friends and patients who have donated so far! 🙂

This was part of our monthly newsletter that went out in January 2011, announcing our partnership with Soles4Souls:

Press Release:

Our office is now an official drop-off location for Soles4Souls!

As we always do year-round, we are collecting shoes to donate to the needy, but this month we are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Soles4Souls to help them accomplish their goal in 2011 to change 11 million lives. 

Please consider donating shoes for this cause! We will take any pair of new or gently used shoes. All you have to do is drop them off in our lobby, and we will do the rest. We will pack and ship them to be distributed by our team at Soles4Souls. 

Help us put smiles on the faces of 11 million needy people in 2011!
