The Rhode Island Podiatric Medical Association is hosting a “Socks for the Needy” campaign through May 30 to benefit needy children and adults as part of their 100th anniversary. Collection bins are set up at podiatrists’ offices and YMCAs throughout the state.

“Podiatrists have long recognized the high incidence of foot conditions among the needy and homeless.” said Dr. David Ruggiero, president of the RIPMA. “Our association thought a community outreach campaign like this was the perfect fit for podiatrists as we enter our anniversary year. We give particular thanks to the YMCAs in Rhode Island, the Salvation Army and the Pawtucket Red Sox for participating as partners in our community service project.”

Those that donate a pair of new socks at participating YMCAs can enter to win one of 10 family packs of tickets and food vouchers at the “Sox for the Needy” Pawtucket Red Sox baseball game on June 12. Fans that attend the game and donate a pair of new socks when they enter will receive a chance to win a baseball autographed by the Pawtucket Red Sox team that will be raffled off at the game. •
