Omaha Foot Doctors Provide Foot Care For Homeless At Sienna Francis House
December 10, 2018
MD West ONE’s team of Foot & Ankle Specialists provided foot care services to the homeless at the Charles Drew Health Center at Sienna Francis House this past Saturday, December 8, 2018.
The annual event was hosted by Soles4Souls, a charitable shoe drive that provides boots, shoes and socks to the homeless.
MD West ONE’s team of foot and ankle surgeons provided toenail care, callus removal and foot exams to the homeless recipients before they were paired with new shoes.
“Soles4Souls was a wonderful opportunity to give back to those who need it most in the Omaha community. Every year, the foot doctors at MD West ONE really find it to be an eye-opening experience. We provide a free foot exam, and they also get an expert shoe fitting so they have a good pair of shoes to battle the elements of the cold weather in Nebraska," explained Dr. Nicholas Wegner.
Since Soles4Souls began in 2006, they've distributed over 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. Take a look at the impact they've made...
