Newtown Podiatrist Dr. Lawrence Kalker is again partnering with Valley Youth House in Warminster and the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter in Levittown for their 8th Annual Holiday Sock Drive to benefit both facilities.
The Sock Drive will take place now through January 1st, 2021.
Since 2013, the Sock Drive has been very successful, collecting more than 8,500 brand new pairs of socks from our patients and community members.
All new socks for children and adults are accepted.
Socks may be dropped off at Kalker Podiatry, 6. S. Sycamore Street, Newtown.
Due to the pandemic, it is very important to please drop off your sock donations in the container outside of our office.
