Physical therapy clinics in Coeur d'Alene, Hayden, Post Falls and Rathdrum are accepting donations of new youth athletic tennis shoes, sizes from new born to 13, youth 1-9), and socks through May 15.

Since 2006, Shoes4Kids has distributed over 1,200 pairs of new youth tennis shoes and over 2,000 pairs of youth athletic socks to the children across the country.

The Shoes4Kids event is again being organized in conjunction with American Physical Therapy Association Annual Conference & Exposition, June 12-15 in Boston.

The hope is for volunteers to visit four different shelters in four days and to distribute a total of 800 pairs of new youth tennis shoes and socks to the children of Boston.

The local physical therapy community will donate 10 percent of the shoes and socks to underserved children in North Idaho.
