Ride Uber – Give back!
We’ve teamed up with Richard Sherman to spread the word about his upcoming Celebrity Softball Game! Proceeds from the event go to his foundation, Blanket Coverage, and other nonprofits that are working to help our community thrive. You can also support the cause by riding Uber!
RIDE + GIVE BACK
Request a ride by tapping the “DONATE” option at the bottom of your screen, and Uber will donate $1 to Blanket Coverage. For every ride taken this Friday, July 17th – Sunday, July 19th, you can help Blanket Coverage provide students in low-income communities with school supplies and clothing so they can achieve their goals!
“I’m proud to partner with Uber to raise awareness about my Blanket Coverage Foundation and help low-income students who need an extra boost. Thanks to Uber and riders across Seattle, we can make even more of a difference in kids’ lives– providing them with the materials they need to increase their chances of success.”
-Richard Sherman, Cornerback and Blanket Coverage Founder
What is Blanket Coverage?
Blanket Coverage, the Richard Sherman Family Foundation, was formed in 2013. Since then, Richard Sherman and the Blanket Coverage team have made it their mission to provide school supplies and clothing for students across America.
So whether you’re headed to the Celebrity Softball Game or just going out for a night with your buds, ride Uber and give back!

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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
