“We are proud to be partnering with DoorDash to distribute PPE directly to Dashers and New Yorkers here in the Bronx,” Nunez said. ” While thousands get vaccinated each day, the pandemic continues and PPE is always in need. It means a lot to our community for DoorDash to be here giving out masks, hand sanitizer and other essentials. DoorDash has provided a lot of support to the Bronx and we look forward to continuing to partner with them on future events.”
Dashers have said that it’s been a great way to connect with DoorDash directly in their communities to check in on how the last year has gone.
“I’ve been Dashing since last spring when the pandemic shut everything down,” said driver Johnny Marrero. “I love delivering with DoorDash because of the flexibility it gives me and the important work we do. From giving out school lunches to delivering meals to seniors, our work kept New York City running during the darkest days of the pandemic and it still continues today. Through PPE, DoorDash ensures we stay safe while we make sure New Yorkers are fed.”
