For countless Haitians, the shoes they put on their feet on the day of the earthquake are the only pair of shoes they have. Imagine the dangers of navigating broken glass, mangled metal and raw sewage in tattered shoes, sandals, or worse – barefoot. ProEx Physical Therapy is partnering with Soles4Souls to host a shoe drive to help support the Haitian relief effort. We will be collecting new or gently worn shoes for adults and children from Monday March 8th to Friday, March 12th. Now is the time to donate those shoes just taking up space in your closet. The collection boxes will be located in the reception areas of 5 ProEx Physical Therapy locations: Boston, MA, Woburn, MA, Haverhill, MA, Stratham, NH, and Farmington, CT. Thanks in advance for your support!
