$2 million dollars is nothing to sneeze at and DoorDash is certainly not sneezing as they plan to give away $2 million in gift cards as incentive to receive the COVID-19 vaccine!

Fox17 reported that each gift card is valued at $25 and will be distributed across 1,000 local health centers in the U.S. The donation is being done to help the White House reach its goal of vaccinating 70 percent of American adults before July 4, according to DoorDash.

The DoorDash Blog said that since vaccines became available, DoorDash has donated over $3 million in gift cards to bolster local outreach and encourage community vaccination efforts across the country, with $2 million distributed in collaboration with the NACHC and Direct Relief. This donation will support vaccine outreach and participation at an estimated 1,000 local community health centers across the country over the next few weeks. In addition, the gift cards can help people who have been recently vaccinated put food on the table and rest, reducing the burden of potential side effects.

This is a big program as it is a part of DoorDash’s Community Credits program, which provides donations of DoorDash gift cards to nonprofits in order to help them empower the communities they serve, reduce food insecurity as a barrier for their target audiences, and encourage participation in programs that expand access to opportunity. In 2021 we’ve donated to vaccine outreach efforts across the U.S. and Canada through Community Credits, including $1 million to community-based organizations serving as mobile vaccination sites in California through the state’s Office of Emergency Services.
