To help support the transportation needs of individuals and families affected by the wildfire in the Northern California area, McKesson has partnered with Lyft to provide complimentary rides to local hospitals or treatment centers. Today’s partnership follows on McKesson’s donation of $100,000 to the American Red Cross in support of wildfire relief efforts.
“Because of the North Bay fires, even getting to treatment centers remains a challenge for many patients. Through our partnership with Lyft, we can ease the transportation burden and remove a major barrier to patients receiving the medical care they need,” said Christine Lopez, president of the McKesson Foundation.
For individuals in need of a Lyft to or from a treatment center in the North Bay and surrounding areas, please use Lyft promotion code “MCKESSONCARES” to qualify for your free ride. Complimentary rides available for a limited time only, and rides must start or end at one of the partner healthcare organizations. (Please note that anyone requiring emergency medical needs should contact 9-1-1.) Treatment centers include (among many others):
