Pilgrim’s Mt. Pleasant 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 Titus Regional Medical Center, the clinic will be held on Aug. 14 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mt. Pleasant Civic Center (1800 N. Jefferson Ave.).

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. Nearly 65% of Pilgrim’s Mt. Pleasant team members have been vaccinated to date.

“Vaccination is the best line of defense against the spread of Covid-19,” said Rapheal Boyd, Pilgrim’s Mt. Pleasant complex manager. “We invite everyone to come out to this free clinic and do their part to protect our community with the added bonus of the 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.
