In a press statement, Careem said that the initiative, which will go on until the middle of this month, and allows citizens to donate winter clothes to impoverished families by pinpointing a pickup location and a drop-off location to have the donation dry cleaned and sterilized. 

The clothes will then be sent to the Promise Welfare Society, which will hand them out to the families. The company said the process is free using the promo code “CLOTHESDRIVE,” according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra. 

The initiative, the company added, aims at boosting the spirit of giving among members of the local community.
