Crocs announced on Wednesday that healthcare workers across the US will be given the opportunity to get a free pair of shoes, with the choice between select styles of Crocs Classic Clogs and Crocs At Work. They will be donated daily while supplies last with free shipping through its website.
“Like everyone, we’ve been closely monitoring the news and working hard to map out a way to most effectively help where we can,” Crocs President and CEO Andrew Rees said in a statement. “Over the past week, we have spoken to healthcare workers, their facilities and even their family and friends, and 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.”
“Crocs is immediately prepared to fulfill and ship up to 10,000 pairs per day to our heroes in healthcare. The duration of our giveaway will depend on our level of inventory and the amount of requests we receive,” he continued. “These workers have our deepest respect, and we are humbled to be able to answer their call and provide whatever we can to help during this unprecedented time.”
