KIM FOOT CHARITY FOUNDATION·FRIDAY, JULY 31, 2020· We believe - as you do too - that no person, regardless of age, race, gender, or income level, be without a decent pair of shoes, and have to suffer from foot or ankle pain.
While doing free podiatry care for 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! So in 1997, Dr. Kim started collecting used shoes from his patients and colleagues and donating to those less fortunate communities in Mexico and Los Angeles. Since then, for the last 23 years, we have collected almost 100,000 pairs of shoes. And we're not stopping there. Do you have gently worn shoes in your closet or garage and don't know what to do with them? Let's donate them to help shoeless children and adults in communities in need.
