How D2M Started
Drive2Mercy was founded in 2020 by actress and high school student, Riley Go.
In March 2020, she was featured in OC Family Magazine as one of the 8 whiz kids in Orange County, CA. She had just finished working on Showtime's new pilot, booked a voiceover role, and was getting screen tested for an ABC comedy pilot. Then just like that...everything shut down.
When she got her driver's permit, she found a renewed sense of freedom and purpose. She would pick up donations from friends / neighbors decluttering their homes, practice her driving skills, and drop off the items at Mercy Warehouse. This win-win situation inspired her to start Drive2Mercy.
