Health care workers have been working tirelessly on their feet during the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, Starbucks is donating $500,000 to fire responders in the USA, with half of the donation going toward care packages for healthcare workers and the other half to pay for personal protection medical equipment and other essential items.
Health care workers can claim their free pair on the Crocs website. Keen is giving away 100,000 pairs, valued at $10 million; Merrell has delivered 1,200 pairs of shoes and boots to Michigan-based health-care workers; and Crocs is offering free styles to health-care workers on its site as well as donating 100,000 pairs in conjunction with select medical facilities and organizations.
Rees said the company is prepared to fulfill and ship 10,000 free pairs per day. Anybody interested simply had to send an email to the company with their credentials and mailing address.
Crocs are known to be a preferred footwear choice among health workers since they are comfortable, waterproof, and can be easily cleaned.
As of Tuesday, the San Francisco-based brand is splitting the cost of donating a pair of Wool Runners with its customers. Crocs.com received a tremendous amount of traffic Wednesday, and the brand met the limit of how many free pairs of shoes they were allowed to give out.
Currently, over 400,000 people are in line for free shoes. Last Thursday, for instance, Clove showed up at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia at 8 a.m., right before doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners were about to start testing patients.
