Seven Hills partners with Lyft to provide free COVID vaccination rides

In partnership with rideshare company Lyft and the city of Worcester, NEC Member Seven Hills Foundation will provide Worcester residents free and discounted rides to and from COVID-19 vaccination sites.

As a part of Lyft’s Universal Vaccine Access campaign rolling out throughout the country, low-income families receive ride credits through the Worcester Family Resource Center at YOU, Inc. The center, an affiliate of Seven Hills Foundation, provides workshops, programs, and referral services for the local community.

“Access to reliable transportation represents a major barrier to care for millions of Americans across the country, especially for vulnerable communities,” said Brendan Joyce, the community engagement manager for Lyft in Massachusetts, in a press release. “The strength of all of our partners, including Seven Hills Foundation, combined with our ability to address transportation barriers enables us to support equitable vaccine access for those who need it most.”

The New England Council commends Seven Hills for this generous gesture in support of their community. Read more from the Worcester Business Journal.
