Pilgrim’s Donation Will Provide Bus Transportation for Team Members, Community
This project will help establish a bush route for Pilgrim’s team members, many of whom currently walk or bike to work. In addition to the $90,500 gift to provide funding for buses, Pilgrim’s will also pay $35 a week per rider with minimum pay equal to 20 riders ($36,000) to supplement the cost of operating the buses. Rides will also be available to elderly and vulnerable population in the community to get to doctor appointments and the like.
