      Crocs Cares
      Jul 1 2020 – Jun 30 2021 all-day
      Crocs Cares

      At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, Crocs worked together across the organization to donate more than 860,000 pairs of our shoes to frontline healthcare workers around the world.

      Today, Crocs is proud to be an official partner of Feeding America. This is the next step in our journey to continue to do the right thing and provide help where we believe it is needed most.

      Beginning July 1st, 2020, every time a consumer completes a purchase in one of Crocs U.S. retail stores or on Crocs.com, they can now add a donation amount of their choosing to go directly to Feeding America.

      In addition to the consumer donation, Crocs will also be releasing limited-edition, collaboration 3-Packs of Jibbitz™ charms for $9.99, with 100% of profits going to Feeding America. With 90% being distributed to food banks based on sales and the final 10% supporting the national office. Those will be launching later this summer, so stay tuned for more on the Jibbitz™ charm 3-packs that give back.

      Crocs has seen the power of our organization when we come together for good, and know that together we will be able to make a meaningful impact to those who need it most in our local communities.​

      Enjoy Chocolate Carmelicious Cheesecake made with Snickers at Cheesecake Factory and support Freestore Foodbank!

      The Cheesecake Factory is adding a new Chocolate Caramelicious Cheesecake to the menu for National Cheesecake Day 2020. The flavor consists of classic cheesecake swirled with Snickers candy bar pieces on a brownie crust. Each slice is topped with a thick layer of chocolate cream, a drizzle of caramel, a sprinkle of peanuts, and a few generous dollops of whipped cream.

      In addition to releasing the new flavor, The Cheesecake Factory will be celebrating National Cheesecake Day by donating $1 to Feeding America for every slice of cheesecake sold on July 30. And for every slice of the new Chocolate Caramelicious Cheesecake sold from July 31, 2020, through July 29, 2021, they will donate $0.25 to Feeding America. The program will generate a minimum donation of $300,000 which will be split 50/50 between the national office and the food bank where the qualifying purchase was made.
