Crocs joins coronavirus relief by donating shoes to health care workers

COVID-19: Free shoes for health workers from Crocs, Allbirds

Crocs is trying to make it a little easier on those healthcare professionals by giving away free pairs of their shoes in daily giveaways.

Last week, Allbirds announced on Instagram that it would be donating free Wool Runners-its best known style-to healthcare workers.

The shoes have always been a popular part of many a healthcare worker's wardrobe thanks to their comfort, their ability to be slipped on and off easily and that most of the styles (especially the ones in the nursing and hospital shoe category) can be easily cleaned with soap and water. The company recently announced it was donating its shoe - already a favorite of the medical community - to healthcare workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Rees said, "I know many of those workers are terrified about coming home to their families and infecting their families".

Trump has also overstated Democrats' response to the travel ban, accusing Senate Minority Leader Charles E. A paucity of testing is one of the problems. "It (WHO) has been very, very much sided with China".

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

The company, which launched the program "A Free Pair for Healthcare" on Wednesday, looks to donate 10,000 Crocs a day to those who work in the medical field. The company says it has distributed $500,000 worth of shoes since last Friday but that it is unable to meet the huge demand for free footwear without the help of its consumers.

The request option then reopens the next day at noon. Crocs is also sending 100,000 pairs to hospitals around the country to hand out to employees.

"We want to ensure these shoes are going to those who need the ability to easily clean their shoes after a long shift".
