Free Food Bank Rides

14 Nov 2017

Whether you’re volunteering or donating goods to fill your food bank’s holiday needs, Fasten wants to help you get to and from hassle-free.

Get up to $20 off any ride to and from your local food bank, 11/20 – 11/22.

Have other Thanksgiving giving plans but know someone who can take advantage of this? Help them out by letting them know. They’ll thank you.

Note:
Unless you’re staying to volunteer, make sure to tell your driver that you’re just dropping off goods but will need to end the ride and request a second ride right after. That way you can take full advantage of the $20 off each way and you’ll have a driver right there. And while you’re at it, every dollar you tip your driver we’re matching for you in free ride credit, 11/20 – 11/26. So tip big!!
