Nike Donates Shoes to “Healthcare Athletes”
In these uncertain times, many companies are stepping up to help those front line, healthcare workers. Nike is the latest to donate to those essential workers. According to CBS 6 News, Nike corporation has announced that it will be providing thirty thousand shoes to front line healthcare workers during the pandemic. They designed the Air Zoom Plus specifically for the "healthcare athlete".
Major cities will receive the shoes that have been designed by Nike and their partner Good360. Good360 is a non-profit organization that specializes in the distribution of donations to help deliver the shoes. They will be delivered to New York City, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Chicago.
Along with donating the thirty thousand pairs of shoes, the Nike Foundation has committed more than twenty-five million dollars to help fight the coronavirus.
Last month the Croc shoe company donated thousands of pairs of their comfortable shoes to healthcare workers on the front lines for free. The response was overwhelming.
