Just what my feet have waited for. I'll be buying more. My narrow feet like the fit. Won't be walking out of these. Perfect!
Archies Footwear was absolutely honoured to recently donate more than 12,000 pairs of Archies Arch Support Thongs to Australia’s health care workers.
The Arch Support Thongs were distributed to staff between The Royal Melbourne Hospital, St Vincent’s Hospital, The Alfred Hospital, The Epworth, Prince of Wales Hospital, St George Hospital, Sutherland Hospital, Sydney and Sydney Eye Hospital.
The past two years have taken a significant toll on our front line health care workers.
The world-wide and on-going COVID-19 pandemic and closer to home our 2020 Australian bushfire season have put our health care workers under the type of extreme pressure most Aussies could never imagine.
Archies Footwear Founder and CEO, Daniel Jones, said the Archies team were stoked to hear how the donations were received by staff at the hospitals.
“We were excited to hear the donations put smiles on more than a few faces at the hospitals and the staff, which is exactly what we were hoping for,” he said.
“After being on their feet all day supporting those who need it most in Australia, we thought what better way is there for us to be able to help our health care workers relax than look after their feet in a pair of Archies. From everyone at Archies, we wanted to say thank you so much to all our local health care workers for what you have done and continue to do - you are heroes in every sense of the word.”
Corporate & Community Partnerships Manager at St Vincent’s Hospital, Richard Thayer, outlined just how much the donation meant to staff.
"On behalf of our staff, thank you to Archies Footwear for the significant donation in recognition of the care our staff provide."
"Archies were handed out to staff across the hospital. Staff that treat a patient population with some of our most diverse and complex medical conditions mentioned they were having a particularly tough day, and so it was great to see how this donation brought a smile to their faces. They were extremely grateful for the fact that people were thinking of them and wanted to acknowledge the care they provide in such a kind and generous way."
