A recent partnership between Lyft and the United Service Organizations Pathfinder program will provide the military community with resources to help them transition from active duty to veteran status.
The USO Pathfinder program provides one-on-one services to military service members and their families to develop an action plan and connect them to resources as they’re transitioning out of the military.
As part of the partnership with Lyft, military members will have resources to become Lyft drivers, and will also be given ride credits for veterans and their families to use throughout the year for job interviews, medical appointments, and airport transportation.
“Partnering with Lyft makes it easier for members of our military community to explore new economic opportunities, make it to medical appointments on time, and to take the leap into the next phase of their lives,” said William Fehrenbach, site manager at the Lakewood USO Transition Center for Innovation.
This year, USO will also be a recipient of Round Up & Donate, Lyft’s national program that allows Lyft customers to donate to USO or another charity of their choice. For more information on how to support the USO, visit Round Up & Donate online.
