San Francisco drivers can’t stop giving back. Last month, more than forty Lyft drivers gathered to deliver disaster delivery kits to homebound Bay Area seniors, who are limited in their ability to purchase goods or prepare meals for themselves.
Lyft drivers teamed up with Meals on Wheels San Francisco and Gigwalk to distribute Disaster Preparedness Kits to homebound seniors. The drivers used the Gigwalk app to find the best directions, while also figuring out delivery routes for future MOWSF volunteers.
24% of seniors served by MOWSF have no other source of food.
We look forward to seeing how other drivers reconnect people and communities by joining volunteer initiatives across the country.
The Lyft for Good program grew from self-led volunteer initiatives we've seen from Lyft drivers in their communities. Lyft drivers have gone above and beyond in communities nationwide to perform these acts of kindness, so we wanted to support those efforts by creating a channel for even more drivers and passengers to give back in the future. Every few weeks, our Lyft for Good series will highlight these remarkable drivers and their impact in their communities.
