Uber & Goodwill Partner to Spring Clean Your Closets

uber-goodwill-spring-cleanIt’s great to see collaboration between two radically different types of organizations, with the end result being a win-win situation for both of them, while also serving to meet a common need in the community.

Uber is teaming up with Goodwill tomorrow, May 3rd, and making it easy to spring clean closets while supporting an organization that works to empower and employ individuals with disabilities.

“On Saturday May 3 open your Uber app and request the ‘SPRING’ option. Within minutes an UberSUV will arrive to haul off your clothes and donate them to Goodwill on your behalf.”

It looks like this initiative from Uber is only available in Manhattan, through Goodwill NYNJ, but here’s hoping that other cities and other organizations pick up on this idea and run with it.
