Uber is giving you one last chance to spread some holiday season goodwill—and talk to a few strangers in the process.

For every UberPOOL ride taken in Boston today, the company will donate $1 to Pine Street Inn, the largest homelessness resource center in New England. All you have to do is request an UberPOOL as normal, then enter the code RIDEFORPINESTREET.

Pine Street Inn’s president and executive director, Lyndia Downie, said in a statement that the partnership is especially important now, during the holiday season:

“Uber has made it easy for thousands of Bostonians to contribute to our mission to end homelessness during this important time of the year, as we head into winter and colder temperatures. Your contributions are a critical component of the work that we do in Boston, and we look forward to continuing to make an impact on the lives of hundreds of homeless men and women in our community through this partnership into the New Year.”

If you’re looking to do a little holiday philanthropy, it doesn’t get much easier than that.
