BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pacific Aesthetic Institute and Perry Liu, M.D., are proud to sponsor a shoe drive to help women in need. The "Walk the Walk" charity event is collecting shoes to donate to the Downtown Women's Center in Los Angeles. The shoe drive is taking place throughout the month of May and coincides with Mother's Day.
While a variety of organizations collect clothing and coats for people in need, many families, in particular women and children, lack proper footwear. The Walk the Walk charity is unique by focusing exclusively on shoes, especially shoes for mothers.
"Mothers are a driving force in our society, and we need to ensure they have proper shoes as they lead their children in their journeys to adulthood," says Dr. Liu. "Walk the Walk is symbolic of mothers everywhere who work hard, lead by example, and pave the way for the future. Only a mother truly knows what it's like to walk in a mother's shoes."
The charity is hoping to receive and then donate several hundred pairs of shoes. Shoes can be dropped off at or mailed to Dr. Liu's office at 8929 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 400, Beverly Hills, CA 90211. Any type of shoe or footwear is welcome.
"Everyone needs a comfortable pair of shoes," Dr. Liu continued. "That's why we're asking our patients, friends, and people in our communities to go into their closets and find a pair or two of shoes to donate and make a difference in a mother's life. We want to spread the word and involve as many people as possible to participate in this cause."
