Did you know the average person throws out over 70 pounds of clothing each year? In honor of Earth Month, Boise Uber is teaming up with Easter Seals-Goodwill of Northern Rocky Mountains to help keep useful goods out of landfills. This is similar to a special free Uber donations pickup that Uber offered in Seattle recently. On Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10am to 4pm, select the DONATE option at the bottom of the app, type in your location, hit request, and Boise Uber will pick up your clothing donations for free. Your contribution will help fund Goodwill’s free job training and education programs. Here is how this promotion will work:
- Bag your jackets, shirts, pants, and other unwanted clothing you’d like to donate.
- Open the Uber app between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
- Tap the donate option at the bottom of the app.
- Type in your location and hit request.
- If you’re matched, an Uber driver-partner will arrive to collect your donations and drop them off at a nearby donation center.
- Those who donate will receive a follow-up email with tax receipt info.
Here are the details you must keep in mind before you donate:
- This free service will be available in the greater Boise area, including Meridian and Eagle.
- Uber can only accept clothing donations if they’re bagged.
- Boise Uber driver-partners can’t leave their cars unattended—please meet them curbside with your donations upon arrival.
- While you probably have other great items to donate, Uber is only accepting clothing for this drive.
- Demand will be high, so please be patient.
Help make a positive impact in the Boise community. Consider cleaning out your closet and supporting a great cause.
