Can I call an Uber to jumpstart my car?

I'm in my driveway, but my car won't start. Since I live down a road where I'm the only house, I'm wondering if I can call an Uber driver to help me jumpstart it. I'm assuming it would be way cheaper than calling a tow.

“Uber, as a ridesharing company, does not offer to jump start cars as part of its official services.
You may be able to contact a driver and negotiate with them on the side, but there’s no guarantee they will perform this service for you.
Many car insurance policies have roadside assistance services as part of their policies, so you may want to check with your provider to see if this service is included first.
If you’re looking for cheap car insurance and roadside assistance, Jerry offers roadside assistance through Urgently.”
