Introducing #UberGIVING – Helping Kolkata Give Back This Republic Day

What’s a better way to embark upon the new year than to give back to our community. This Republic Day, we’re introducing UberGIVINGWith our network of thousands of riders and drivers, we’re helping Kolkata give back!

On Monday 26th January from 12pm-4pm, you will be able to request an UberGIVING car to come and collect donations from your home or office. These donations will go to various charities across the city. In return, the UberGIVING volunteers will hand over a thank you present in the form of a gift voucher from OKHAI, a rural women empowerment organisation.
