The #UberSLEIGH Toy Drive Is Coming To NYC!
‘Tis the season in NYC. Fifth Avenue is bustling, the Rockefeller Center lights are ablaze, and the UberTREEs are delivered. Bringing the holiday spirit to your homes and offices was a delight, but the most important part is yet to come.
This year, join us in giving back to our community and host a toy drive in your office. We’ll come by with an UberSLEIGH full of festive surprises, and collect donations from the first 100 offices that pledge to contribute 20 or more toys.
HOW IT WORKS
- Fill out this form by 5:00pm on Tuesday December 17th. Hurry! Spots will fill up quickly.
- Spread the word with your team and please make sure the items are age-appropriate (more info below).
- We will get in touch to schedule a pickup next week.
- On pickup day, the UberSLEIGH and our team of elves will land at your office with plenty of treats to thank you for participating!
We will deliver all donations to our local partner, Room to Grow. They’re dedicated to enriching the lives of babies born into poverty by providing families in need with individualized parenting support, referrals to vital community services and all of the needed baby items to ensure a healthy and secure start in life for their children. To learn more, you can visit their site here.
WHAT YOU CAN DONATE
Room to Grow accepts unwrapped toys and baby items in new or excellent condition, that are appropriate for children ages newborn to three years old. For hygiene reasons, stuffed animals and used fabric toys are not accepted. New fabric toys are fine. You can see a full list of approved items here.
Special thanks to our partners, Room to Grow and The Patrón Spirits Company for powering the UberSLEIGH this holiday season!
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
