Another successful year for the Kim Foot and Ankle Center’s, Annual Shoe Drive! For our 11th year we managed to collect over 8,000 shoes! We could not have done this without all the wonderful donations from our patients, friends, family, and our generous drop off sites.
To kick off our shoe donation, we had a special Donation Celebration, Hawaiian Style! We decorated our office for a luau; our staff wore Hawaiian print scrubs and Hawaiian shirts, everyone received and wore leis; we had Hawaiian music playing inside and outside of our office. Our staff served wonderful Hawaiian food and desserts to everyone in attendance. It was a perfect day filled with sunshine, smiles, shoes, and success.
After a wonderful meal and a few words from Dr. Kim, and our sponsors, we all got together to capture the event! Thank you all for attending!
A special thank you goes out to all offices who volunteered to have a box at their residence or place of business. Without you, we would never have had the great success! Thank you again!

Time to Kick Off Our 11th Annual Shoe Drive!!
We are excited to announce our yearly shoe drive will be starting May 1st – July 31st.
It started as a vision, while doing free podiatry care to the impoverished areas of Mexico, Dr. Kim noticed that many of the foot problems suffered by these patients could have been eliminated if they just had the proper protection shoes!
In 1997, Dr. Kim decided that collecting used shoes from his patients and colleagues would be a great way to obtain shoes for those less fortunate in Mexico and Los Angeles. Then the idea of the Kim Foot & Ankle Shoe Drive was born!
The purpose of the shoe drive has also been, that no person, regardless of age, race, gender, or income level, be without a decent pair of shoes.
