Footwear company Crocs is donating thousands of pairs of shoes to health care workers.
The company is giving away 10,000 pairs a day through an online registration. The waterproof, easily cleanable, rubber-like clog is popular with health care workers.
"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," company CEO Andrew Rees said in a statement. "We only have one ask: Share the word to all those in healthcare and please be mindful to allow those who need these most to place their requests. This is the least we can do for those working incredibly hard to defeat this virus."
The company also plans to donate 100,000 pairs of shoes to health care facilities in Denver and Dayton, Ohio.
Here is the link to request the free shoes.
We are working hard to donate 10,000 pairs a day to those working in healthcare and currently have more than 400,000 people in line. All we can do is ask for your patience. Please check back tomorrow at 12 p.m. ET. It is our hope that we can get everyone a pair and do our part. pic.twitter.com/tfHobXGm1V— Crocs Shoes (@Crocs) March 26, 2020
