Ride For A Cause This Memorial Day

In celebration of Memorial Day, we’re teaming up with Meals on Wheels. For every uberX trip taken on Memorial Day with promo code MEMORIALCHI, $1 will be donated to Meals on Wheels Chicago — that means your efforts can help support home-bound veterans, senior citizens and people with disabilities, allowing them to continue to live independently in their own homes.

Share this with your friends and ride for a cause!

This Memorial Day we’re paying tribute to the stories of the Veterans who we are proud to call our partners. We’d like to take a moment to thank these partners for their service and their positive impact on our city.

During his service, Ozell worked on planes (more specifically, the A6 and A4 models) and was also a Blue Angels crew member.
