I recently reported on United Independent Taxi’s support of the Burbank Family Safety Festival, but they deserve some more mention as they have continued to support community events in the Los Angeles area. They bill themselves as “the cab company that cares about the community & the environment.”
On December 9th, United Taxi donated a bag of toys and promotional calendars, coin purses and pens at the annual holiday event hosted by 26th District California Senator Curren D. Price, Jr. at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles. All donated items from the evening will go to needy families in and around L.A.
United Taxi December sponsored the Kids Are 1st child safety booth (www.kidsare1st.org) that offered free child ID fingerprints and photos on December 11th & 12th at the Winter Holiday Festival at Pershing Square. Events included a Snow Fun Zone, Holiday Ornament Grove, Puppet Show, Make & Take Holiday Crafts, and entertainment, and the cab company passed out free promotional items, “green” recycled tote bags, pens, coin purses and magnets.Councilwoman Jan Perry, 9th District President Pro Tempore Los Angeles, CA stopped by the booth.
Then, on December 18th, United Taxi donated 200 ‘green’ recycled tote bags filled with grocery donations for 100 needy families this holiday season at the LAPD Pacific Division’s annual Winter Wonderland event which featured Santa, fun and games.
Kudos to United Independent Taxi for their involvement in the community!
