NYC Goes to Town with UberSLEIGH!

 

We were amazed by the overwhelming response to UberSLEIGH! Last week we asked NYC to join us in giving back to the community, and hundreds of requests came pouring in. We were truly moved and decided to double the number of pickups to 200. Companies large and small have stepped up to make the holidays a little brighter for the city’s children in need. The Uber NYC community is coming together to benefit local non-profit Room To Grow, which enriches the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development.

Tomorrow, we will head to almost 200 sites in NYC to pick up gifts for Room To Grow, including Time Out, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, King & Grove, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation among many other great companies. Each participant pledged at least 20 toys. That means thousands of toys for Room to Grow – and a lot of Christmas cheer for all of us at Uber NYC.

Follow the fun on Twitter and Instagram with #UberSLEIGH as our elves and UberSLEIGHs traverse the city picking up donations.

 

Special thanks to our partners, Room to Grow and The Patrón Spirits Company for powering the UberSLEIGH this holiday season!

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–
