NEWTOWN >> Newtown podiatrist Dr. Lawrence Kalker is partnering with Valley Youth House in Warminster and the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter in Levittown for its 6th Annual Holiday Sock Drive to benefit both shelters.

The Sock Drive will take place through January 1.

Since 2013, the Sock Drive has been a huge success collecting nearly 5,000 pairs of socks. Socks may be dropped off at Kalker Podiatry, 6 South Sycamore Street, Newtown. Dr. Kalker specializes in geriatric, pediatric and family foot care and treat all conditions affecting the foot and ankle including sports injuries and diabetic foot disorders.

Valley Youth House Shelter is a 13-bed facility for runaway, homeless, troubled, abused and neglected boys and girls ages 17 and under.

The Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter, operated by Family Service Association of Buck County, is a temporary residence for individuals and families who have lost safe and stable housing.
