A year ago today, we launched the Lyft for Good program to empower drivers nationwide to volunteer and create a positive social impact in their communities. As we celebrate one year and National Volunteer Week, we want to thank all the remarkable drivers involved.
When we started Lyft for Good, our goal was to inspire 100 Lyft for Good events by our first anniversary. Thanks to these drivers, we surpassed our goal, with more than 250 Lyft for Good initiatives in a single year. Hundreds of drivers donated thousands of hours to give back to their communities, from driving seniors to their medical appointments to giving free meals to the underserved.
Lyft’s vision is to reconnect people and communities. Fueled by both humanity and technology, the Lyft for Good program has connected drivers nationwide so they can become a collective force for good.
Here’s to another exciting year, and thanks again to all the amazing drivers who make it happen.
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 two weeks, our Lyft for Good series will highlight these remarkable drivers and their impact in their communities.
