Every health care worker is currently working on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic and that means working extra long shifts every day. The most comfortable shoes for nurses and doctors to wear are Crocs since they are on their feet all day so the company decided to give back to them. Crocs launched a program to give on free pair of shoes to every health care worker who is working on the front lines in the U.S. during the coronavirus pandemic. The "A Free Pair for Healthcare" program allows doctors, nurses and other medical employees to choose one free pair of Crocs Classic Clogs or Crocs At Work styles.
President and CEO of Crocs, Andrew Rees said in a statement,
"Like everyone, we’ve been closely monitoring the news and working hard to map out a way to most effectively help where we can. Over the past week, we have spoken to health care 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."
Health care workers can claim their free pair on the Crocs website. Yesterday, the posted a message on Instagram saying the requests are high and if they fulfill the 10,000 shoes before you can claim yours to come back the next day at 9am to get a free pair. They are prepared to not only fulfill and ship the 10,000 free pairs per day, but they are also sending 100,000 pairs to hospitals around the country to hand out to employees.
