A torrential storm arrived in Durban this week, causing flash flooding and large-scale damage to housing and additional structures. This has also resulted in mass displacement and loss of belonging, leaving many people in need of help from their city! On Friday, 13 October, 2017, with the touch of a button, a driver-partner will come to your doorstep, pick up your donations and deliver them directly to the South African Red Cross Society depot in Durban – all for free! The donations will be given to those in need across the city of Durban as part of the Uber COMMUNITY support effort. Here is a sample of the items that are needed for the Uber COMMUNITY support efforts:
- General toiletries and household items
- Baby products (formula, nappies, baby food)
- Adult and children’s clothing and blankets
- Sanitary pads
- Animal blankets and food
- Tinned non-perishable food items
This is how you can help your community members:
- Open the App on Friday 13 October, between 12pm – 3pm
- Click on the orange UberCOMMUNITY banner on your screen
- Request an Uber vehicle as usual (no need to enter a destination)
- When the driver arrives – please meet him/her at your pick-up point with your donations
Please remember these details:
- If you are unable to request an UberCOMMUNITY vehicle on the day, please drop off your much-needed items at 201 Kenneth Kaunda Road, Durban North.
- To facilitate the collection and distribution of all donations, Uber has partnered with the South African Red Cross Society.
- The donation drive will run between 12pm -3pm on Friday, 13 October 2017. Requests must be placed within those hours.
- All donations must be bagged or boxed in order for drivers to accept your donation. If possible, please mark clearly what you are donating.
- Please keep in mind that driver-partners can’t leave vehicles unattended, so please bring your items out to meet your driver when they arrive.
- UberCOMMUNITY will be in high demand so please be patient.
- The donations will be going to those in need across the city of Durban.
