Uber has announced that it will donate $300,000 in rides, food, and relief to the families and communities affected by Hurricane Harvey.

In a statement, the rideshare company shared its concern for the families affected by the recent disaster and pledged to do its part to help those in need.

"To support displaced families throughout Texas, Uber is donating free rides to or from shelters (up to $50 each) in multiple cities. No action is required to receive a free ride to or from these locations-the full discount will automatically be applied and reflected in the app when you request uberX," the company said in a statement.
