PIKUP TO PICK-US-UP!
Updated: Mar 30, 2020
We hope you are doing well and staying safe.
It's been amazing to see how friends,
neighbors, strangers, and local businesses across the country are coming together to help each other overcome these extraordinary times.
Given the nature of our platform, we realize we have a unique opportunity to help our community. We're launching new features and initiatives starting today to help support you and those you love get what you need wherever you are!
PIKUP IS DONATING 5% TO FEEDING AMERICA 🌎
Starting today until April 20th, Pikup will donate 5% of anything bought through the platform to a local food bank through Feeding America.
We want to mobilize anyone out there through Pikup to provide a pick-me-up for friends, family, or neighbors while supporting a great cause.
HOW YOU CAN YOU HELP? 🏘
Know a friend or neighbor who can use an extra hand with errands over the next few months? Use Pikup to help coordinate trips to local grocery stores with your
