PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gopuff, the go-to solution for immediate everyday needs, today announced $300,000 in donations to a dozen local health care organizations that have been working on the frontlines of COVID-19 across the nation over the past year.
“Community health organizations like Philadelphia FIGHT have played a huge role in our battle against COVID-19 and in our massive vaccination efforts,” said Philadelphia 1st District Councilmember Mark Squilla. “The Philadelphia FIGHT team has always worked hard to keep our community safe and healthy, and their tireless effort over the past year amid the pandemic has been truly admirable. We are grateful for Gopuff’s generosity in giving back to the groups that have done so much for our residents during a challenging time.”
In March of 2020, as part of the company’s $1 million Health Care Support Initiative that launched in response to COVID-19, Gopuff partnered with dozens of hospitals to deliver essentials to health care workers nationwide and the company continued to execute on this commitment over the past year. Now, in addition to donating $80,000 to Philadelphia FIGHT, Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium and Valley Youth House in the company’s hometown of Philadelphia, Gopuff is supporting a number of organizations across the country in cities where the company operates, including:
- Upham’s Corner Health Center in Boston, MA
- Emory COVID-19 Impact Fund in Atlanta, GA
- Denver Health Fund COVID Response Fund in Denver, CO
- Rush Hospital COVID-19 Fund in Chicago, IL
- Banner Health Foundation Comm Response in Phoenix AZ
- Hope Mission Center in Miami, FL
- Family Health Centers of San Diego, Inc. CA
- Mission Language and Vocational School in San Francisco, CA
“Gopuff’s donation literally allowed us to jump-start our COVID-19 community vaccination program. This program will enable us to serve ‘vaccine desert’ neighborhoods, vaccinate seniors, back-of-house food service workers, recent immigrants and others with little access,” said Mike Marsico, Chief of Staff, Philadelphia FIGHT.
