Dress for Success Houston: On-demand Donation Drive

Uber is passionate about making cities better and empowering all members of the communities in which we operate. To celebrate Women’s Equality Day, we’re teaming up with Dress for Success Houston this Wednesday.

“Dress for Success Houston relies on our community to do the work that we do and deliver our mission with dignity and respect to low-income, job-ready women. We are thrilled to partner with Uber to support professional attire donations for the women we serve.” – Lauren Levicki Courville, Dress for Success Houston Vice President

Through our partnership with Dress for Success Houston, riders like you can donate items that help disadvantaged women gear up for job interviews. On Wednesday, August 26, open your app and donate to Dress for Success Houston at the touch of a button.


Enter promo code SUCCESSHOU and Uber will also donate $1 to Dress for Success Houston for each ride taken this Wednesday.


HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Bag up gently-used professional attire (e.g., suits, blouses, jackets, skirts, pants, professional handbags, hosiery, scarves, closed-toe shoes, and portfolios).
  2. Open your Uber app between 11AM and 2PM on Wednesday, August 26th.
  3. Request GIVE near the bottom of your screen.
  4. If you’re connected, an SUV will arrive to pick up your items and will drop off your donation to Dress for Success Houston – completely for FREE!

Pro Tip: Beginning today, bring donation items to work and gather one big donation pickup from your workplace on Wednesday. Share the donation drive with co-workers that don’t use Uber and encourage the entire office to participate!

Houston is stronger when women thrive and are able to reach their full potential. Together, we can advance this goal by helping to equip and empower women to achieve economic independence.
