To you it may be an old coat, but it can make a huge difference for someone else in your community. That’s why we’re teaming up with The Salvation Army to launch a 3-day coat drive, making it easier than ever for you to donate your gently used coat.

Consumers in select cities will be able to donate gently used coats through Uber Connect, our same-day local delivery solution. Uber will then cover the trip (up to $25*) to deliver your coat to a participating Salvation Army* location in your city, starting on Thursday, January 27 to Saturday, January 29, from 10:00am to 5:00pm (local). 

The coat drive will be available in 20+ Salvation Army locations in New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago and San Francisco. The donated coats will be sold at Salvation Army Thrift Stores to support their Adult Rehabilitation Center operations which help people of all backgrounds build work and social skills, regain health and stability, combat substance abuse and restore families.

Uber Connect is our cost-effective, same-day local delivery alternative with real-time tracking, so you’ll always know when your package, or coat, gets delivered. 

Are you ready to push a button and donate a coat? 

Here’s how to donate: 

  • Apply the promo code to your Uber Wallet (see promo below)
  • Place your gently used coat in a bag 
  • Select Package 📦 in the Uber app, tap “Send a package”, and enter your location and your nearest Salvation Army (list below)
  • Tap Choose Connect 📦
  • On the Review Order screen under the Dropoff section, update the delivery method to Meet at Door and add a note for the driver: “For Salvation Army Coat Drive”
  • Follow along via the in-app instructions and watch as your coat gets delivered in real-time!

The holiday season may be over but there are many families still in need. Uber and The Salvation Army thank you for continuing the spirit of giving and keeping everyone warm this winter.
