As health care workers continue to fight on the frontlines, Crocs is making sure they do it in comfort and style with a giveaway during National Nurses Week.
Beginning Monday, Crocs will give away 10,000 free pairs of shoes a day for five days to health care workers for their “Free Pair for Healthcare” program. Through May 14, they will be able to request a pair starting at noon ET up until the day’s free pair allotment has been fulfilled.
“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,” Crocs CEO Andrew Rees said in a press release.
The gesture repeats the company’s efforts last year when they gave over 860,000 free pairs of Crocs to health care workers as the COVID-19 pandemic began.
“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,” Rees continued.
Free giveaways to workers on the frontline are a continued trend since the beginning of the pandemic.
