Crocs is Giving Free Shoes to Healthcare Workers This Week
Crocs is once again saying thank you to healthcare workers on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic with free footwear.
In 2020, Crocs donated over 860,000 free pairs of shoes to healthcare workers globally, which was valued at approximately $40 million. The footwear brand is back at in 2021, during National Nurses Week, which begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday.
May 10 through 14, Crocs is giving away 10,000 shoes per day to our healthcare heroes who continue to fight against COVID-19.
Crocs CEO Andrew Rees said in a release,
We are thrilled to bring back our 'Free Pair for Healthcare' program and celebrate our frontline healthcare heroes who have worked harder than ever before to provide comfort in our communities over the past year. Last year's program reinforced for our brand that doing the right thing is the right thing for Crocs, and we are honored to be able to take this moment to once again provide our shoes, this time as a thank you for the incredible work these individuals do each and every day.
If you're a healthcare worker and you'd like a free pair, the website opens for requests at approximately 12:00 p.m. ET each day and remains open until that day's free pair allotment has been fulfilled. Croc's says if you visit the webpage the day of the event prior to the event time you will be placed in the pre-queue.
