The Driver Foundation led the charge to give back to members of the LGBT community in need during COVID-19. The Driver Foundation’s Take-Out to Help Out campaign focuses on at-risk LGBTQ+ youth in Washington, D.C.
“We are purchasing meals from LGBTQ-owned businesses that have been affected by the economic effects of the pandemic, and providing to nonprofit organizations that serve LGBTQ+ youth at risk of homelessness,” said Anthony Shop, CSO and Cofounder at Social Driver.
The quickly growing Take-Out to Help Out campaign’s first nonprofit partner is SMYAL.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the communities we care about need support like never before, especially small businesses and marginalized communities,” Shop explained. “This program has a double benefit by generating revenue for small businesses and by serving vulnerable individuals and showing them there are people who care about their well-being.”
