Carhartt Helps Local Nursing Students
#OutworkGraduation with Scrubs Donation

Workwear brand outfits future essential workers at University of Detroit Mercy to celebrate Nurses Week

DEARBORN, MI - Over the last 12+ months, nurses all over the country have sacrificed, endured and persevered, giving everything they have to their profession and patients as the pandemic hit our country. That’s why during Nurses Week 2021, Carhartt and its licensing partner, CID Resources, a division of Superior Group of CompaniesTM (NASDAQ: SGC), are recognizing the hard work and bravery of the next generation of nurses by outfitting local Detroit graduates with scrubs to #OutworkGraduation.

To show its appreciation for incoming essential workers, Carhartt and CID are pleased to donate 336 pairs of scrubs to the graduating class of University of Detroit Mercy’s College of Health Professions and McAuley School of Nursing. Each graduate receives two scrub sets with the total donation valued at approximately $16,800. While this year’s ceremony is virtual, graduates of Detroit Mercy’s College of Health Professions and McAuley School of Nursing will be able to celebrate their accomplishments with a few new sets of durable scrubs that can handle any job from day one.

In addition to the University of Detroit Mercy donation, Carhartt is offering 20% off all scrubs on until May 12. Scrubs are available in a variety of styles and colors, for both men and women. They feature FastDry® technology to wick away sweat, Stain Breaker® technology to release stains and Rugged Flex® technology to increase movement.
