Giving Back This Giving Season

In the spirit of giving season, TaskRabbit is focusing on how we can give back to the communities in which we operate. Hopefully, you participated in our 10-year anniversary celebrations, during which we donated our entire service fee on October 10—50% going back to Taskers, and 50% going to non-profit organizations through our TaskRabbit for Good program.

This month we’re taking things to the next level. One of our core company values is being a better neighbor, so this giving season we’re making this front and center. Over the next few weeks, TaskRabbit HQ employees will be volunteering in each of the cities in which we have offices—and we’d love for you to join us! Here is a quick rundown of where we will be volunteering:

San Francisco: St. Vincent’s Homeless Shelter

St. Vincent’s provides shelter and vital services to over 400 homeless individuals every single night. The facility is in great need of various repairs and upgrades, which will provide a better experience and more ample services to San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations. TaskRabbit HQ employees will be cleaning, painting, and sprucing things up alongside Taskers and Clients in our community.

New York City: Food Bank for New York City

Food Bank For New York City has been working to end food poverty in the five boroughs for 35 years. As the city’s largest hunger-relief organization, they help low-income New Yorkers meet their needs and achieve greater independence. TaskRabbit HQ employees will be cooking meals for those in need alongside Taskers and Clients in our community.

Austin: Central Texas Food Bank

The Central Texas Food Bank has been at the front line of hunger relief with the help of partner agencies in 21 counties across Central Texas. They provided more than 45 million pounds of food to families in need during the 2016-2017 fiscal year, the largest amount distributed since the organization’s establishment in 1982. TaskRabbit HQ employees will be cooking meals for those in need alongside Taskers and Clients in our community.

London: FareShare

FareShare redistribute surplus food that would otherwise go to waste to those in need. Last year they redistributed 16,992 tonnes of food to 1,500 towns and cities across the UK. This food was redistributed to 9,653 of them including homeless hostels, children’s breakfast clubs, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and community cafés.
