Uber + Goodwill Part Deux

Uber and Goodwill-01We are excited to announce once again Uber and Goodwill have teamed up! Tomorrow, November 25, you can request an Uber SUV to come and pick up your gently used clothing between 2pm and 8pm. The Uber driver will drop off your donation to a local Goodwill at no cost to you.

Here is how it works:

1. Download the Uber app (Android, iPhone, Blackberry)

2. Between the hours of 2pm and 8pm tomorrow select the GIVE option on the bottom of the screen.

3. Once your driver is confirmed, you will see an ETA for their arrival. Have your donations bagged up and ready.

4. Once your driver has arrived, you will receive a text message confirmation and bring your bags to the car.

Please Note: Pickups will only be available in Manhattan. We expect high demand since it is the start of the giving season so please be patient!

To request a tax receipt, email donations.department@goodwillny.org with the following and we will be happy to send a receipt:

Phone number
Date of pickup
Location of pickup (if your address, just say that)
Number bags
Itemized list of donations

Since 2012, Goodwill has been able to divert more than six billion bounds of goods from landfills nationally thanks to donors like you. Locally, Goodwill NY-NJ helped residents keep more than 87 million pounds of unwanted goods from local landfills last year. Not only are you making an impact in your closet, you are making an impact on the planet.

Your purchases support the mission of Goodwill.
