Comfort for the Sole

Posted By on Sat, Nov 21, 2009 at 11:07 PM

New Orleans orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Treuting is teaming up with Our Hearts to Your Soles and Soles4Soulsl to give free foot screenings and shoes to homeless men on Monday, Nov. 23, at Ozanam Inn on Camp Street.

Our Heart to Your Soles is a national campaign to help homeless people with foot problems by providing free shoes, boots, socks and medical screenings. The fourth annual event will be held in 40 cities nationwide, with Red Wing Shoes and Hanger Orthopedic Group donating footwear for the program. About 125 pairs of shoes are available for Monday’s event in New Orleans.

Soles4Souls founder Wayne Elsey says having a pair of comfortable shoes can make a person more confident and is a major step in building self-esteem and finding employment.
