Clackamas County: Ice Removal
Yiftee Gift cards are a great way to help your community get back on their feet in moments of crisis. When ice storms threatened the citizens of Clackamas County, Yiftee stepped in to help. Citizens without access to ice removal services were given a $30 eGift Card to spend at local landscaping and yard cleaning removal firms.
All parties benefited; the citizens of Clackamas County were given the opportunity to clear their homes of ice and debris and local businesses brought in additional revenue. Because citizens independently chose their company, the local landscaping companies of Clackamas County were incentivized to help their citizens as much as possible. Through Yiftee, Clackamas County was able to recover from a devastating ice storm and return to life as normal.
