You may have read that Uber was involved with the Samasource GiveWork Gala on Thursday night in downtown San Francisco. The event successfully raised the non-profit $171,000 & that was matched by an anonymous $100,000. Overall, an extraordinary night for the charity and we were honored to be a part of that .

This Saturday evening, we’re helping out another charity called Pencils of Promise, by providing discounted transportation to attendees. We’re stoked to be able to help such a cool, innovative, and impactful organization. We’re finding helping with events to be a fun (and sometimes truly rewarding) opportunity for us to provide quality service. Anyone who’s planned an event like this knows that it’s all about the details and we’re happy that we can help add some flavor to the ‘to & from’ travel!

Here’s a bit more info about the Pencils of Promise event (Sign up for the SF event here).

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
