Shoes4kids has distributed over 6,000 pairs of new athletic shoes and socks to underprivileged children as an event in conjunction with the American Physical Therapy Association's (APTA) annual NXT conference. The shoe drive is a way that the APTA can give back to the community that hosts the national conference as well as encourage physical activity in children around the nation. We accept monetary donations, new athletic shoes for all ages and genders and new athletic socks. Shoes will be distributed at New hope housing in Alexandria, Va., during the APTA NXTA conference at National Harbor, Md. Contact Dr. Shawne Soper, PT, DPT, MBA for information on making a donation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
