Dr. Bruce Pinker of Progressive Foot Care in White Plains recently put his best foot forward in an effort to help the homeless. He invited his patients to donate their lightly used shoes and boots to support a shoe drive for Westchester’s men, women, and children in need. The patients responded by donating more than 360 pairs of shoes and boots in all shapes and sizes, many of them new.

The shoes were donated to Lifting Up Westchester (LUW), a local non-profit social services agency, for distribution to individuals from their Open Arms Men’s Shelter, Samaritan House Women’s Shelter and Soup Kitchen. This is the ninth year that Pinker has organized the drive.

Bruce Pinker, DPM has been Board Certified with the ABPM since 2016.
