Driving Baltimore Nonprofits Forward with #LyftHealthy2019

Through our community grants program, Lyft is committed to empowering nonprofit organizations doing incredible work around the nation to make our communities stronger, healthier, and more equitable, all year long.

Thanks to this program, Lyft Baltimore is ringing in the new year celebrating the great work being done by local community grant recipients with #LyftHealthy2019.

Ahead of 2019, Lyft chose seven nonprofits to each receive a $1,000 Lyft Community Grant in the form of Lyft ride credits to help them achieve their missions. The credits will be used to ease transportation challenges and support the organizations’ work to create positive change in the Baltimore region.

Using #LyftHealthy2019 on Instagram, Lyft Baltimore teamed up with area influencers over the course of a week to highlight one nonprofit per day and promote how they are making the city a healthier place. Special thanks to DiscoverCharmCity, HealthyLivingwithAsh, Sebasmarin, AestheticDistance, Living_Alexis, CaturdayStyle, and StylishlyTaylored for the promotion of #LyftHealthy2019!
