Through the years, City-Wide Taxi has reached out into the community trying to help where we can, trying to give back to the citizens of Oshawa wherever we can.
These types of outreaches have resulted in us undertaking many food drives for the Simcoe Settlement House, usually during their Christmas season. As well, we have in the past partnered with C.K.D.O. radio and the Auto Workers Credit Union with a Christmas toy drive for the Salvation Army. During the ice storm in 1998, we again offered our services picking up and delivering blankets, generators, and other emergency equipment to drop off points for delivery to our neighbours east of here. During the eastern seaboard power outages, we volunteered to drive people to and from urgent medical appointments free of charge. We knew people would be stuck. No power, meant no access to cash for most people, we believe a person’s health was much more important than a few dollars on the metre.
