Jeepney drivers hard-hit by community quarantine restrictions may be down but they’re certainly not out with companies and individual donors still willing to provide all the help needed for them to get by.
ZRewards, the country’s newest online marketplace for discounts and freebies launched last July 15, is one of them.
Registering with ZRewards by Zeal not only gets customers free access to amazing deals from restaurants and shops, but allows them to help Lalajeep drivers.
The jeepney drivers who lost their livelihoods were taken in by on-demand delivery company Lalamove in agreement with the Quezon City local government unit. Instead of carrying passengers, Lalajeeps carry goods for businesses which need a more affordable means to deliver their products.
To further assist the Lalajeep drivers, ZRewards committed to provide them with care packages once the website reaches 100,000 registered members from July 20 to August 15, 2020.
“We would like to celebrate our first milestone by helping Lalajeep drivers. We are thankful to have LalaMove and Minimart as partners in this undertaking. We hope that the public can also join us in this initiative by being part of the ZRewards family,” said Glenn Z. Estrella, Chief-Executive-Officer of ZRewards.
“Lalamove is so thankful for the support of ZRewards and Minimart to help our LalaJeep drivers. Through this partnership, we will be able to expand our reach to users that will take part in extending additional support to the Lalajeep frontliners who have been drastically affected by this pandemic.” said Dannah Majarocon, Managing Director of Lalamove.
The care packages will be prepared by Minimart which also agreed to provide a generous discount, free packaging and free delivery to the QC distribution site designated by Lalamove. Lalamove will give the items directly to the beneficiaries.
