Demi Lovato is helping Hispanic communities get to vaccination sites!
The 28-year-old, along with the Voto Latino Foundation, has teamed up with ride share company Lyft to provide ride credits in her home state of Texas.
“The Latinx community has been devastated by the COVID epidemic healthwise and economically. The best way for our community to rebound from this pandemic is to get vaccinated – quickly. To that end, Voto Latino Foundation is pleased to partner with Lyft and Demi Lovato to safely provide individuals rides to receive their vaccine. Our aim is to help bridge the gaps and inequities in vaccine distribution for Latinos in Texas. No one should forgo a shot because they don’t have a ride. This is absolutely crucial work,” María Teresa Kumar, Co-Founding President and CEO of Voto Latino Foundation, said in a statement.
Lyft has a goal of providing access to 60 million rides for imperative vaccine access to and from their appointments. If individuals already have their own reliable transportation but would like to fund a ride for someone in need, one of Lyft’s nonprofit partners will connect them to it.
