PickMe, recently distributed school supplies and stationary in lieu of the new school year under its CSR initiate, PickMe Nena Pahana. The beneficiaries of this project were the children of best-rated PickMe drivers islandwide.

This was the 5th instalment of Nena Pahana whereby 1600 students were provided with stationery items worth of 4 million rupees. The items were delivered to the residences of deserving drivers - as a gesture of appreciation for the service rendered, in keeping with health & safety regulations- following a simple ceremony at PickMe Headquarters in Colombo.

“Our drivers and riders are the lifeblood of PickMe; I hope this simple gesture will serve to incentivise them to perform even better this year. We particularly appreciate them rising to the occasion at the peak of the pandemic last year, during the two back to back lockdowns. We’re deeply appreciative of the dedication & commitment,” said CEO of PickMe, Zulfer Jiffry.

COO Isira Perera said: “Best performing drivers are ambassadors of the company.

We are glad the list of recipients is longer this time which is reflective of customer satisfaction.

It is apt to say the recipients were not handpicked by PickMe, but, rather, our loyal clientele. I invite customers to use the rating option so we can reward the good and weed out the bad, if any.”
