Thank You For Making UberSCHOOL A Huge Success!

Last week we asked you to join us and Charlotte Hornets player Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in giving back to our community by hosting a school supplies drive to benefit A Child’s Place.

For the more than 4,700 homeless students enrolled in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, the back-to-school necessities are not always readily available, and preparing for their first day of school is not always that simple. A Child’s Place works to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education.

Area businesses and community groups collected more than 2500 items, from new school uniforms to notebooks – even a laptop. A Child’s Place is able to provide nearly 70 students with a fully stocked backpack for the start of the school year and continue to replenish students’ supply needs for at least the next six months.

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. 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–
