Thank You for Joining Us In The National Salute to Veteran Patients
Last week we asked the Uber Community to join us in the National Salute to Veteran Patients by writing messages of support and gratitude for healing veterans recovering at VA medical centers across the country. For every card submitted, we pledged to donate $1 to the Bob Woodruff Foundation to support veterans in rehabilitation and recovery programs.
We were thrilled to receive thousands of messages from Uber riders, partner drivers, and employees. Last Friday, February 13, UberMILITARY partner drivers joined Uber representatives in visiting local VA medical centers across the country to hand deliver the cards to our nation’s heroes.
Thank you to those who offered notes of appreciation and encouragement. Because of your support, we will proudly be donating $10,000 to the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
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.
