#ChennaiGives with Uber & MRT1

On the occasion of United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Charity, we are teaming up with our friends at Madras Round Table and other local charities to make donating school supplies quick and convenient.


#ChennaiGives – Clean out your closets and let Uber take care of the rest
