School Supplies for Philly Students

August 16, 2016 / Philadelphia

Time to set down the sunscreen and pick up those pencils—school is back in session. While some Philadelphia-area students have already gathered supplies for their first day, many others still need basic items to make their year successful.

To help, we’re launching UberSCHOOL in partnership with Cradles to Crayons and Yoobi. On Friday, August 19, request a free Uber to your location to collect school supply donations. All items will be delivered to Cradles to Crayons and distributed to students in the Philly area to help ensure a successful school year.

Coordinate your office, organization, or group to host a back-to-school drive and collect new or unopened school supplies.

For every UberSCHOOL pickup, Yoobi will double your impact by donating a Yoobi item to a classroom in need.


  • Enter the code SCHOOL16 in the Promotions section of your Uber app
  • Open your Uber app this Friday, August 19 between 11am-2pm
  • Select SCHOOL from the bottom slider
  • Request a vehicle to pick up your donations


Pencils, washable markers, spiral notebooks, composition notebooks, 2-pocket folders, crayons, colored pencils, glue sticks and backpacks.

Don’t just go back to school, give back to school

Keep giving this back-to-school season. For every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item is donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. Use code UBERSCHOOL to get 20% off your purchase now through September 5, 2016. 


Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. 

Yoobi is based on a bright, yet simple idea: colorful, vibrant supplies for school, home, or office that give back—for every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item is donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. One for you, one for me. It’s that simple.
