Crocs brings shoes to kids in Panama

Posted on: April 19, 2010

New pair of Crocs

Last month, Crocs partnered with Feed the Children to donate 500 pairs of Crocs shoes to the children throughout seven different villages in Bocas del Toro in Panama.

With the help of Feed the Children, Crocs shoes were distributed by Operation Safe Drinking Water as part of its effort to set up water systems and dental clinics in the region.

Children who brushed their teeth were given a certificate to visit the makeshift Crocs store, where they were given a pair of new Crocs shoes.

Clean teeth and new Crocs…what could be better?

AWESOME!!! Need that in the earthquake zones!! Good Job Crocs!!

That’s is awesome you are teaching to how important it is to take care of their teeth and they get a great reward for their efforts. As for eathquake comment,if not mistaken I believe Crocs did donate to Haiti and the families who were in crisis because of earthquake.

So sweet

Crocs are just a perfect all rounder shoe which I’m sure the children adored particularly because of the colours.
Just thought I would let you know of a situation in Alice Springs, Australia. The indigenous who live in Alice usually walk barefoot because they don’t own any shoes. This is a concern because the aborigines have poor health, including diabetes. They should be taking extra care with their feet.
Am I correct in saying you use to have a crocs recycling program?
How difficult would it be to supply crocs to the people of Alice Springs?

Hi Antonia, thank you so much for your email. I will pass on your request to Crocs Cares, which donates shoes to those in-need around the world. ~Crocs

dang amazing story man.

That’s great! You made that cute little guy happy! I can’t help but wonder, though, aren’t his shoes on the wrong feet?
