Pilgrim’s De Queen today announced it will hold a free Covid-19 vaccine clinic and give away free meat for a year to one lucky winner who gets vaccinated. In partnership with the Dr. Randy Walker Family Clinic, the event will be held on Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at De Queen First Assembly (1440 W. Collin Raye Dr.).

As part of Pilgrim’s goal to vaccinate Americans in the rural communities where the company operates, it is awarding one winner who receives their first vaccine at the clinic with free beef, pork and chicken to feed a family of four for a year.

“Getting the Covid-19 vaccine shows that you care for your neighbors and our community,” said Eddie Halter, Pilgrim’s De Queen complex manager. “Help us stop the spread of Covid-19 by coming to our free vaccination clinic, and enter for a chance to win free meat for a year.”

Pilgrim’s has promoted vaccination among its workforce of more than 31,000 U.S. employees with great success. The company’s vaccination program includes onsite clinics, paid time off, a $100 incentive bonus and a multi-lingual education campaign. Pilgrim’s wants to help raise local community vaccination rates to help safeguard its hometowns across the country. 

The Pilgrim’s “Your Shot at Free Meat for a Year” sweepstakes campaign builds on the company’s Hometown Strong initiative, a $20 million investment in local communities where Pilgrim’s operates. Learn more here.
