Uber + Roots bring you: #UberSpringCleaning

While we still aren’t sure if spring has actually arrived yet, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Roots to help with your spring cleaning! Today and tomorrow, please take some time to clear your closets of any gently used and unwanted clothing.

Then, on Saturday March 29th, pop open your Uber app and request the ‘SPRING’ option. Within minutes, members of the Uber team will be at your doorstep with an SUV ready to pick up your clothes and donate them to Goodwill on your behalf. (Tweet it!)

HOW IT WORKS:

1. Download the Uber app for iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry7
2. Between 11am-4pm on Saturday, March 29th, open the Uber app and request the ‘SPRING’ option
3. An SUV will arrive in minutes to pick up your gently used clothing – and will drop off your donation to a local Goodwill

#UberSpringCleaning will be in high demand, so please be patient.
