Help others with Uber charity work. On Saturday, May 21, 2016, Uber NYC is partnering with Goodwill NYNJ to pick up your gently-used clothing items for free through the Uber app. Your donations will help thousands of individuals and families achieve a better life through workforce development and youth services. Open the app between 11am—3pm in any of the 5 boroughs in New York City on Saturday, May 21. Tap the menu icon on the left and select the PROMOTIONS menu option. Enter promo code SPRINGCLEAN to unlock the special GIVE option. Request the GIVE option in your app starting at 11am. When connected, a driver will arrive at your location to pick up gently-used clothing items. Since 2014, Uber charity work has changed how folks live in New York City.
- In Spring 2014, Uber kicked off our partnership and collected 2,215 bags in Manhattan equivalent to 55,375 pounds of clothing.
- That Fall, Uber collected a total of 2,485 bags amounting to 62,125 pounds of clothing from users in Manhattan.
- In Spring 2015, Uber extended their coverage to pickup donations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and parts of New Jersey, and collected 5,913 bags equivalent to 147,825 pounds of clothing—their biggest drive yet!
This year, #UberSpringCleaning will offer coverage to Uber users across all 5 boroughs, allowing more New Yorkers the chance to give back at the touch of a button.
Donors must enter the promo code SPRINGCLEAN under Promotions in the Uber app to unlock the GIVE option. On Saturday May 21, select the GIVE option at the bottom right of the app and request for a pickup. An UberSUV will arrive to pick up clothing bags, and the driver will drop off the donations to Goodwill. All donations must be bagged for drivers to accept, and donors are responsible for bringing bags outside, as drivers cannot leave their vehicles unattended. Goodwill NYNJ accepts your donation of gently-used clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, luggage, home goods, books, music, movies, and small working electronics. Please check out their donation guide for a full list of items that can and cannot be accepted. After completing your donation through the Uber app, you can download a donation receipt from the Goodwill NYNJ website.
