The Uber New Jersey office is partnering up with local charities to help out a worthy cause. The countdown to the holiday season has begun! This year, the Uber New Jersey office is teaming up with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey (CFBNJ) to collect canned and non-perishable goods for those in need across the Garden State. The Uber New Jersey office knows it can be difficult finding time to donate to your local food bank, so they are bringing the food bank to your doorstep! This Saturday, November 7, if you’re in Hudson, Bergen or Essex County, you can request a free, on-demand donation pickup courtesy of the Uber New Jersey office. The CFBNJ distributes 43 million pounds of food a year to more than 1,000 non-profit programs.
- OPEN the Uber app between 10am-2pm on Saturday, November 7, 2015 in Hudson, Bergen or Essex County.
- SELECT the ‘FOOD DRIVE’ option in your app.
- REQUEST a free pickup for your canned and non-perishable goods.
- When your Uber arrives, BRING your goods to the driver.
If you are not sure of what to donate, see the Community Food Bank of New Jersey’s list of most wanted food items, such as canned tuna, pasta, and cereal. If you don’t have extra food in your pantry, you can donate directly to the CFBNJ.
