Annual Holiday Sock Drive is underway

Kalker Podiatry is teaming up three local homeless shelters


Newtown podiatrist Dr. Lawrence Kalker is once again partnering with Valley Youth House in Warminster, the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter in Levittown and the Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless in Doylestown for the 10th annual Holiday Sock Drive to benefit the three facilities.

The Sock Drive takes place now through Jan. 1. Since 2013, this initiative has collected more than 13,000 brand new pairs of socks from patients and community members. All new socks for children and adults are accepted. Socks may be dropped off at Kalker Podiatry, 6 S. Sycamore St. in Newtown. Please drop off sock donations in the marked container outside of the office.
