Crocs Offering Free Shoes For Healthcare Workers

Crocs has chose to help some of its loyal customers during their most trying times by donating 10,000 pairs a day to health care workers.

Health care workers have been working tirelessly on their feet during the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday, Crocs hit its daily free pair limit.

"The healthcare industry has always embraced Crocs, but our mantra of "be comfortable in your own shoes" applies now more than ever, and we want to do more to help our nation's heroes", said Crocs President and CEO Andrew Rees, in a statement posted on their website.

Crocs is launching a program to give one free pair of shoes to every health care worker who is working on the front lines in the USA during the coronavirus pandemic.

"The duration of our giveaway will depend on our level of inventory and the amount of requests we receive", he said.

Walmart Announces Massive Hiring Amid Coronavirus Demands
At least seven states have issued stay home orders, and many companies have urged workers to either work remotely or stay home. It plans to hire 150,000 additional people and has enhanced its paid sick-time policy for all its store and warehouse workers.

He continued: "These workers have our deepest respect, and we are humbled to be able to answer their call and provide whatever we can to help during this unprecedented time".

The company does not have an official way to verify that the people claiming are actually healthcare workers but said it is "keeping an eye on this" and "trust that consumers will do the right thing".

The "Free Pair for Healthcare" program will work like this: Every day, at approximately 9 a.m. Starbucks announced they would be giving free coffee to first responders and health care workers during the fight against COVID-19.

Starbucks is also spreading some love to healthcare workers, paramedics, officers, and firefighters with free coffee until May 3.
