ZRewards by Zeal, in partnership with Lalamove and Minimart.ph, has turned over care packages composed of food, toiletries, laundry supplies, and protective equipment, to jeepney drivers and their families who were displaced by the current pandemic.
The move was part of the HELPJEEP campaign launched by the three parties last July wherein the public was encouraged to take part by simply becoming a member of ZRewards for free. ZRewards, in turn, committed to provide care packages upon reaching its target membership milestone.
“We are proud to have gone through this initiative to help our jeepney drivers and their families together with Lalamove and Minimart. It is important for us to proactively serve the community, and practice our commitment to make sure that no Filipino is left behind,” shared Zeal Entrepreneur in Residence, Glenn Estrella.
ZRewards is the country’s newest one-stop shop for premium and solid deals, discounts, and vouchers ranging from food, beauty, health and fitness, entertainment, among other offers, redeemable at online shops and physical stores.
For the HELPJEEP campaign, ZRewards partnered with on-demand delivery company Lalamove to access the Lalajeep drivers who were among the hardest hit by community quarantine restrictions. The jeepney drivers who lost their livelihoods were taken in by 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.
Minimart.ph, on the other hand, provided a generous discount for the items as well as free packaging and free delivery to the QC distribution site designated by Lalamove.
"The partnership with Zeal and Minimart is aligned with our goal to empower our Lalajeep community to continuously reach out to them. The jeepney community was among the most heavily affected by the pandemic, and we are very happy to continue to provide them a means to earn, and moreover, deliver possibilities of having a care package for them to provide essential goods." shares Lalamove Philippines managing director Dannah Majarocon.
