Pilgrim’s Lufkin 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 Angelina County & Cities Health District (ACCHD), the clinic will be held on Aug. 25 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the ACCHD office (503 Hill St.).

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. Attendees who get vaccinated will also receive a free case of chicken.

“The Covid-19 pandemic is not over, and getting vaccinated is a great opportunity to show your loved ones and neighbors you care,” said Christian Dempsey, Pilgrim’s Lufkin complex manager. “We invite our community members to come out and do their part to prevent the spread of the virus with the added bonus of 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.
