This Earth Month, clean out your closet and support Seattle Goodwill.

March 9, 2017 / Seattle

Did you know the average person throws out over 70 pounds of clothing each year? In honor of Earth Month, we’re teaming up with Seattle Goodwill to help keep useful goods out of landfills.

On Saturday, April 8 from 10am to 4pm, select the DONATE option at the bottom of the app, type in your location, hit request, and we’ll pick up your clothing donations for free. Your contribution will help fund Goodwill’s free job training and education programs. In addition, 5 participants will each win a pair of tickets to the Sustainable Sounds concert with KEXP on April 20.*

How it works:

  • Bag your jackets, shirts, pants, and other unwanted clothing you’d like to donate.
  • Open the Uber app between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, April 8.
  • Tap the donate option at the bottom of the app.
  • Type in your location and hit request.
  • If you’re matched, an Uber driver-partner will arrive to collect your donations and drop them off at a nearby donation center.
  • Those who donate will receive a follow-up email with tax receipt info.

The details:

  • This free service will be available in the greater Seattle area.
  • We can only accept clothing donations if they’re bagged.
  • Our driver-partners can’t leave their cars unattended—please meet them curbside with your donations upon arrival.
  • While you probably have other great items to donate, we’re only accepting clothing for this drive.
  • Demand will be high, so please be patient.

Help make a positive impact in the Seattle community. Consider cleaning out your closet and supporting a great cause.
