Hundreds Get Free Shoes at Podiatry Assoc. Giveaway
Fill Your Shoes Drive
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
Hundreds of people in Charlottesville got a free pair of shoes as part of an annual giveaway to help the homeless.
The area Podiatry Association teamed up with the Salvation Army to host the "Let Someone Fill Your Shoes" drive.
People were able to choose from about 3,000 shoes in different sizes.
Organizers say that amount is half of last year's donations
“If you've got nothing, it's good to have something,” event co-chair and podiatric physician Dr. Bryan Snyder said. “In particular your area podiatrists are concerned about people's feet and keeping them healthy, and in the cold it's good to have something that fits your feet, that's keeping them warm and protected.”
Organizers have been able to give away more than 100,000 pairs of shoes over the past 25 years.
