Uber Edmonton & Yess Make Spring Cleaning Easy!
Spring is coming to an end, and it’s time to make sure those closets have been cleaned out. In the spirit of the season, we are teaming up with our friends at YESS to make donating clothing quick and convenient for our Edmonton riders.
#UberSpringCleaning – Clean out your closets and
let Uber take care of the rest
This Saturday, May 30, with the touch of a button, a driver will come to your house, pickup bags of clothing and deliver them directly to a local donation center — all for free!
SPREAD THE NEWS
Through Uber’s ingenuity and the generosity of our community, Youth Empowerment & Support Services will be able to stock our shelves full of clothing for the hundreds of at-risk and homeless youth that access our services each year. We are so grateful for Uber’s support and thrilled to partner with them in this unique initiative. Thank you for helping youth from difficult realities!

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
