Warm socks: A welcome gift for homeless veterans at HVAF

The Indiana Podiatry Group donated 1,100 pairs of socks and roughly 60 pair of Crocs shoes to HVAF on Monday, December 28, 2015. The effort originated as an idea from two medical assistants and quickly ended up gaining support and donations among seven Indiana Podiatry Group offices in Central Indiana. Educating the public on proper foot health is important because many people do not realize the significant impact inadequate socks and can have on one's foot health and overall health especially for homeless veterans who walk the streets in search of shelter and food.

FOX59, CBS4 and the Indy Star were on hand when the donation was made. View photos from the Indy Star here:
