Uber & Australian Red Cross | Clothing Drive | 28 May 2017

Tap a button, make a difference!

On Sunday 28 May 2017 Uber is partnering with Australian Red Cross and, supported by Nova FM, Uber driver-partners will be collecting quality pre-loved clothing to raise funds and support communities across Australia and around the world.

Got pre-loved clothing to give?

On Sunday 28 May, bag them up and request a car to collect and deliver your donation to a Red Cross Shop – free of charge!  Australian Red Cross provides relief to Australian communities in times of personal, local, national and global crisis. When disaster strikes, Red Cross is among the first to arrive and last to leave, and an important active part of your local community.

Keen to get involved?

On Sunday 28 May:

  1. Open the Uber app between 11am and 4pm
  2. Select the Red Cross Clothing Drive card
  3. Tap ‘Request’ and confirm your pick up location
  4. Where available, your items will be picked up (free of charge)!

Donation Dos and Don’ts

While Red Cross Shops are grateful for every donation, demand will be high, so please be patient while donations are collected from as many people as possible.

Red Cross Shops can only accept clothing, shoes and accessories – no toys, books, furniture or electrical items.  Make sure your donations are bagged and ready to go!

Please bring your bagged items out to the car when it arrives. Driver-partners will not be able to leave their cars unattended.

Please donate quality items only. This means the kind of items people will want to buy, or that you would be happy to give away to a friend.
