At the height of the pandemic, Crocs launched its “Free Pair for Healthcare” campaign, a 45-day event beginning in March 2020 in which the organization donated more than 860,000 pairs of Crocs to workers mostly in the United States, but also in Canada and Europe.
The duration of the giveaway was determined by the company’s inventory level and the number of requests Crocs received.
How to Get Free Crocs
All healthcare staff needs to do to get a free pair is request one! Shipping is completely free.
In addition to the free online requests for individual healthcare workers, Crocs has committed to donating up to 100,000 pairs of shoes to be distributed through a variety of select healthcare facilities and organizations in a joint effort to bring as much product into the hands of people who need it the most.
Currently, this includes, but is not limited to Jobs Ohio and the Dayton Area Hospital Association to distribute a large donation through the local Ohio health systems; St. Anthony North Health Campus in Denver, CO; Atlantic Health System which will distribute across multiple facilities within its network, including Morristown Medical Center; and the SONSIEL organization in partnership with its SHARE initiative, newly established to move supplies to healthcare providers across the U.S. who are on the frontline care for COVID-19 patients.
A total donation amount has not been confirmed; rather, Crocs is committed to working as hard as possible every day during this trying period to help as many people as possible. The website will be available for requests at approximately noon ET daily and will remain open until the free pair allotment for the day has been met.
With the understanding that there will most likely be a massive influx of online requests as a result of this initiative, patience is greatly appreciated as the program gets off the ground and orders are met on a daily basis.
