Uber Partners with WQXR to Provide Instruments to NYC Public Schools

Uber-users know that often drivers will offer water bottles, an iPhone charge, or a radio-station switch. Now, one radio-station is switching the options available when you select your Uber. WQXR partnered with the ride-sharing company to help make music education available to public school students in New York and New Jersey.

To support the local classical radio station’s instrument drive, which ran April 8-18th, Uber gave users the option to donate to the cause.

 

For a designated amount of time, users could enter code GIVEMUSIC and select the GIVE option in Uber, and a driver would come by to collect unused instruments for donation! This partnership is good news for students hoping to study double-bas or cello, though WQXR will give all donated instruments (large or small) to local public school students – the next generation of great musicians.
