Uber Continues to Support Disaster Relief Efforts with 2016 American Red Cross Partnership
Uber is proud to announce our continued partnership with the American Red Cross to help citizens and cities cope and recover from disasters. The important work the American Red Cross does to help Americans during their time of need is something the Uber community is honored to support.
The 2016 partnership took effect earlier this year with Uber committing $100,000 to support disaster relief in the wake of Winter Storm Jonas that impacted millions on the East Coast.
“The American Red Cross is grateful for Uber’s continued support. This partnership enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond during and recover immediately after a disaster. These donations support the needs of those affected by disasters of all sizes, at no cost and regardless of income.”
— Trevor Riggen, CEO Northern California Costal Region, American Red Cross
Uber began collaborating with the American Red Cross in 2014 to help thousands of Americans through donations while at the same time facilitating affordable and accessible transportation during moments of crisis. As Uber becomes further embedded in the fabric of cities, we will continue to look to our riders, partners and city leaders for guidance in our commitment to serve their communities.
