According to CNN, DoorDash recently disclosed it will reinstate a program called WeDash, that it had paused during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Community Social Responsibility

DoorDash's founders disclosed to media they launched the drive in a bid to engage the company in the community and philanthropic efforts from the outset.

"As the company grew, the founders wanted everyone to experience different parts of the product so we could get closer to all our audiences and understand how the product works," a DoorDash spokesperson told CNN Business.

"By engaging as a Dasher, supporting a merchant, or shadowing a customer experience agent, employees learn first-hand how the technology products we build empower local economies, which in turn helps us build a better product," the company said.
