Companies large and small are learning in real-time how to navigate a new world. Employees are working from home, making sacrifices to show up for essential services, or have had their positions reduced or even eliminated due to COVID-19. It’s a challenging time, to say the least. But, we are seeing examples of businesses across the country rising to the occasion.  It’s no surprise to us that digital and plastic gift cards are playing a role. Greenlight Networks is one example of how companies send relief with gift cards during COVID-19.

Greenlight Networks: Send Relief with Gift Cards

Based in Rochester, New York, Greenlight Networks build its own fiber connections for their clients, providing an extremely fast and affordable Internet service for a wide range of customers. The company sent DoorDash gift cards to all of their employees to provide meal delivery during quarantine.

Greenlight Networks employees deeply appreciated the DoorDash gift cards. Their virtual lunch hour together provided a welcomed relief and opportunity to bond. Not just that, local restaurants benefitted greatly from the business boost. What a great way to fuel teams and local economies to help everyone get through this difficult time.

“The gift cards went over great!” said Hannah Brennan, Business Development Lead. “Everyone was very appreciative and since we encouraged everyone to use them to order local, we were able to give our community here in Rochester a little support! We also had a ‘virtual lunch hour’ so we had everyone try to take lunch at noon and we used our company messaging system to share what we ordered, reflect on our first work from home week and stay connected! “
