Uber Hawaii pays tribute to its veteran partners
This Veterans Day, we are proud to honor some of the Uber partners who have protected and defended this country. We’d like to introduce you to a few of them – and we hope you’ll join us in saying “thank you.”
Name: Pawel K.
Pawel was born and raised in Warsaw, Poland, but immigrated to the US to serve in the United States Army. After being stationed at Schofield Barracks and serving abroad, Pawel began to call Hawaii home. Pawel served in the US Army for five years, and now he is pursuing secondary education with the GI Bill. He looks back fondly upon his time in the military, but he has moved on to a new chapter of life. When he isn’t studying, Pawel partners on the uberX platform.
Name: Henry P. Henry served in the U.S. Army for twenty years at home and abroad, and he recently retired. He fell in love with the islands of Hawaii during his service and has since settled on Oahu. Henry achieved the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 2 during his service, but he has found a new passion – the study of architecture. While completing his degree at the University of Hawaii, Henry partners with UberBLACK just as his brother does in Georgia. Henry and Pawel are just two of the many veterans, service members, and military spouses we are grateful to partner with here in Hawaii. While we couldn’t feature them all today, we do want to thank every one of them for their years of service.
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.
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. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
