Uber and Goodwill® Make Spring Cleaning Easy
Spring has sprung, and it’s officially the time of year for cleaning out closets. In the spirit of the season, we are once again teaming up with our friends at Goodwill® and other local charities to make donating clothing quick and convenient.
#UberSpringCleaning – Clean out your closets and
let Uber take care of the rest
This Saturday, May 2, 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!
Building on the success of our previous partnerships in the New York, Boston and San Francisco areas, this year Goodwill and Uber will work together in more than 50 cities across the U.S. In addition, Uber will partner with local charities to collect donations in several other cities including Amsterdam, Doha, St. Petersburg and Stockholm.
We are excited that Uber is so significantly expanding its partnership with the Goodwill. Thanks to the generosity of our neighbors and friends, and Uber’s continued commitment to helping more people achieve economic independence, Goodwill will be able to make an even greater impact in local communities.
— Kim Zimmer, Chief Marketing Officer of Goodwill
HOW IT WORKS:
- Bag up your clothing such as jackets, shirts, pants, blouses and any other items of clothing you’re willing to donate.

We hope you join us on Saturday!
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.
