Crocs donating 10,000 pairs a day to US healthcare workers
Crocs footwear has become staple to every health worker’s lockers. It is made out of a rubber-like molded polymer resin, making it waterproof and can be easily washed off. With all the special precautions due to the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), it is definitely a must-have.
Just recently, their manufacturer has announced a program to donate 10,000 pairs a day to healthcare workers. The “Free Pair for Healthcare” program will begin taking orders for one pair of shoes per healthcare worker from select classic clog or Crocs At Work styles up to a daily limit of 10,000 pairs.
“Over the past week, we have spoken to healthcare workers, their facilities and even their family and friends. They have specifically asked for our shoes in an effort to provide ease on their feet, as well as ease of mind as they need the ability to easily clean up before they go home to their families,” said Crocs CEO Andrew Rees.
Crocs said it is delivering some shipments straight to hospitals and other facilities, but that it is allowing workers to sign up for the free shoes by going to www.crocs.com/freeforhealthcare. It said it will continue to donate the shoes as long as supplies last.
