Lyft Rides Opportunity ends April 16, 2021
In Partnership with the United Way Worldwide, AT&T, and Lyft, CIE partners were able to help some of our most vulnerable clients get connected to transportation services. 

Since the launch of the Lyft Rides opportunity in 
September of 2020, CIE received nearly 2,000 referrals from clients in need of transportation to COVID-19 vaccination sites, job interviews, access to public health services, and more. Nearly 50% of the clients referred, received services by Lyft.

We are sad to announce that we have exhausted the funds this fiscal year and this opportunity will close today, April 16, 2021. We look forward to sharing information on future Lyft ride transportation opportunities.

See the link below for other transportation options in our community.
Doordash Essential Goods Opportunity ended March 9, 2021
Last year, 211 San Diego responded to the food demand during COVID-19 and stood up food delivery distributions for Central and Greater San Diego.

They proudly have coordinated and worked with multiple CIE Partners and other community organizations to accomplish this feat including San Diego Food Bank, American Red Cross, FACT, Aging and Independent Services, UMCORP, and Team Rubicon. 

One year into the pandemic, many more service providers stood up to meet the food demands in San Diego County. 

On March 9, 2021, 211 hosted their final delivery day out of the American Red Cross distribution center. Going forward, they will work with partner organizations, including the Rock Church to hand off existing clients enroll in ongoing food delivery. 211 will continue to work with direct service providers to maximize access to all available food resources.
The CIE team thanks you and your teams for your contributions. 

See the link below to get connected to other food delivery programs.
