As Honolulu’s Keiki have returned to school, the high temperatures in some local classrooms have created a difficult learning environment – and Uber Hawaii Oahu is ready to do something about it. Uber Hawaii Oahu is proud to join State Representative Matthew LoPresti in a program called Cool Schools 4 Ewa which tackles the problem of high temperatures in classrooms. Cool Schools 4 Ewa accepts donations of large fans or high capacity portable air conditioning units to schools in the Ewa area – one of the hottest areas on Oahu. As part of Uber Hawaii Oahu’s continued commitment to the community, Uber will connect everyone in the Hawaii community to support cooler schools. On Tuesday, September 1st from 3p-7p, you’ll be able to open your Uber app and donate a fan or high capacity portable air conditioning unit to this program from wherever you are. When you open your app, slide over to the fan icon and request, and in minutes, there will be an Uber Hawaii Oahu vehicle curbside near your workplace or home, ready to take your fan donation to an Ewa school. The best part is, in addition to the fans Uber will be collecting to donate to Cool Schools 4 Ewa, Uber will match every donated fan with a fan, up to a total value of $1,000. With a tap of a button, you can cool down a classroom and Uber will double your efforts.
