BriteLift Gives Back to The Chicago Community – Donations

BriteLift Gives Back to The Chicago Community

Supporting Our Local Community

At Britelift, we take pride in helping our Chicagoland community, especially during this difficult time. Accessible transportation for our wheelchair community is as vital as ever, and our goal to provide the best experience.

BriteLift not only provides wheelchair  accessible transportation that is safe and sanitized, we also give back to local Chicago organizations that need support.

As a locally owned and operated company we are happy to provide for our citizens in need when we can.

Donations to District 65’s Family Center

BriteLift, a locally owned and operated company, works with Chicagoland schools to provide students, their families and administration with safe transportation solutions. As the opportunities arise, BriteLift donates supplies and other contributions to programs that help our community.

BriteLift donated 200 masks through a program called Doorway to Learning. Our donation went to The District 65’s Family Center, where we supplied their staff and families with KN95 masks to provide an extra degree of protection during the current health crisis.

We realize the importance of staying protected, as every BriteLift wheelchair accessible ride comes with supplies such as hand sanitizer, masks and more for passengers and drivers. Stay safe and healthy Chicago!

“Thank you for your donation of KN95 masks to District 65’s Family Center. Your donation will help us give our staff and families 57% more assurance than we were offering with our current mask. According to a recent research study that indicates KN95’s are 97% effective against the spread of COVID-19, while some other masks are only 40% effective. You have made a difference by increasing our peace of mind, adding a level of protection, and supporting in meeting our health and safety priority. Thank you!”
