  Safe Haven official Cassandra Richardson said “Crocs are comfortable and a pleasure to wear for long periods of time while providing protection from slipping and falling. We plan to add the donation to the welcome and care package given to each new resident that seek the sheltering services of Safe Haven. It will also help remove that occupational hazard and the staff at Safe Haven will be happy for the added security to help them move around freely to better assist our residents.”

  Safe Haven Foundation is a 24-hour/7 days a week shelter. Besides shelter, they provide counselling, practical and referral support, community awareness, education and advocacy.

  “We are committed to supporting recovery efforts and are proud to partner with K1 Brittania Foundation and Safe Haven Foundation to help those in need and those volunteering their time to aid others in comfort. As part of Boolchand’s, which has been here for 54 years, we have experienced the impact of natural disasters before so we know these are trying times for all and every little bit counts in situations like these,” Crocs & The Boolchand Group representative Lavina Nandwani said.
