Crocs is giving away 10.000 pairs of shoes a day to health care workers
Between the 10th and the 14th of May, the brand will give away 10.000 pairs of Crocs at Workshoes per day to frontline healthcare workers who continue to provide comfort in the communities
Kicking off during National Nurses Week, Crocs will once again give away 10.000 pairs of Crocs at Work shoes per day to frontline caregivers in the United States. The program will begin on the 10th of May and conclude on Friday, 14th of May. The website will open for requests at approximately 12:00 p.m. ET each day and will remain open until that day's free pair allotment has been fulfilled.

"Free Pair for Healthcare" was originally created in direct response to requests from Crocs fans and healthcare workers seeking out comfortable, easy-to-clean Crocs shoes designed to be there for the long hours, late nights and early mornings.

"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", commented Crocs CEO Andrew Rees. "Last year's program reinforced for our brand that doing the right thing is the right thing for Crocs, and we are honoured 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", Mr. Rees concluded.
 
In 2020, Crocs donated over 860.000 pairs of shoes globally – valued at 40 million US dollars – to healthcare workers on the frontline of the fight against COVID-19. This year's effort will bring the total donation amount to more than 900.000 pairs of Crocs shoes.
