MICHIGAN PODIATRISTS JOIN IN COLLECTION EFFORTS TO ASSIST MIDWEST FLOODS VICTIMS

 LANSING, Mich., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Podiatric offices in the metropolitan areas of Detroit, Flint, Pontiac, Lansing and Grand Rapids are serving as area collection sites to assist victims of the midwest floods. Participating offices, organized through the Michigan Podiatric Medical Association (MPMA), are collecting paper products, cleaning supplies, non-perishable foods, coffee, Gatorade, beverage mixes, baby food, disposable diapers and first-aid supplies throughout July and August for distribution by the Salvation Army.
 "The stories coming out of the midwest are heart-wrenching," said Randy Kaplan, D.P.M., MPMA president. "Things that we take for granted such as access to grocery and convenience stores and protection from the elements have all been washed out. We hope, through this state-wide project and the number of offices in the community, that we can better assist in easing some of the flood area's immediate needs."
 For more information on the collection, please call the MPMA headquarters at 1-800-968-6762. In addition to the participating podiatric offices, all Salvation Army facilities are collecting supplies during regular business hours.
 Monetary donations are also needed, but are not being collected through the podiatric offices. Checks should be sent to:
 The Salvation Army
 "Operation Noah"
 16130 Northland Drive
 Southfield, MI 48075


One-hundred percent of the donations for "Operation Noah" will go to the relief effort.
 The Michigan Podiatric Medical Association was founded in 1914 to increase awareness of the profession, to improve the quality of foot care, and to promote the importance of foot health among the general public and health care professionals throughout the state.
