The Giving Continues with our #UberIMPACT Toy Drive
Our hearts definitely grew 3x the size yesterday. Thanks to a handful of local businesses, we packed UberSUVs FULL of toys for Treehouse. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Broadway Across America, The Grinch, Cindy Lou & KIRO Radio for helping us put this toy drive together.
Most importantly, we’d like to thank the businesses who participated in bringing joy to foster children in our community:
Carter Subaru, Impinj, Motif Seattle, DRY Soda, Quote Wizard,
The Four Seasons Hotel, Ascentis, Board & Vellum, MargiDavid Salon,
Rally Group, and Seattle Parks Foundation
‘Twas the night before the holidays, when all through the city
Not a creature was stirring, not even an UberKITTY;
The Ubers were lined up by the Needle with care,
In hopes that the UberGRINCH soon would be there;
When out on the street there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our office chairs to see what was the matter.
When what to our wondering eyes did appear?
But a couple of SUVs, decked out in holiday cheer
And then, in a twinkling, we heard on the street
The gift collecting Grinch (which we think is pretty neat.)
He was dressed all in green, from his head to his feet,
And he took a moment to stop, snap a pic and tweet.
He spoke a kind word, and went straight to his tasks
He collected ALL the toys to fulfill the kiddo’s asks
And running out the door with a clever grin,
Back to the SUV, off to the next toy bin!
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
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.
