It's time again for our Annual Back-to-School Shoe Drive for Mary's Place. Our drive runs from now until August 12th.  In 2018, this amazing organization served over 1,000 kids experiencing homelessness. These kids are constantly outgrowing their shoes and are in particular need when they go back to school.

Last year the Foot and Ankle Center collected over 300 new and gently used shoes from patients like you and with the help of several shoe stores in the Seattle area. So thank you!

Participating shoe stores are: Sole Perfection (Fremont, Shoreline, and Everett), Kids on 45th, New Balance Alderwood, and The Woolly Mammoth.

To give, consider the following:

  • Shoes can be purchased for kids of all ages. Keep in mind some teenage boys have very large feet.
  • Sturdy, closed-toed, waterproof shoes are the best.
  • Tennis or running shoes are favorites.
  • Clean, gently used shoes can also be donated (shoes worn a few times).

Drop shoes off at the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City at  2611 NE 125th St, Seattle, WA 98125 from 9am-5pm M-F or your local participating shoe store. Call us at  206-368-7000 if you need directions.

Thank you for helping kids in our community!
