Philly Says Thanks to Our Heroes
The weekend of this year’s Army–Navy Game, we partnered with the American Red Cross to honor our service members and share a touch of home. As part of the Holiday Mail for Heroes initiative, we stocked over 200 cars with blank holiday cards and pens, giving Uber Philly riders the opportunity to write a personal note to our troops.
The response was incredible. Over 1,000 riders penned heartfelt messages thanking our UberHEROES for their service and sending holiday wishes. A few riders shared their notes:
- Warmest wishes to you, who serve during the holidays. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Much love from the U.S.A.
- Happy holidays! Thank you for your service and all that you do. You are what makes America great. Stay strong.
- Thank you! I simply can’t express the gratitude and appreciation that we truly feel.
We delivered the cards to the American Red Cross headquarters and they are making their way to our service members around the world. Thank you Philly for helping to give our heroes a piece of home over the holidays.

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–
