Spreading Holiday Cheer

Posted on Friday, December 29th, 2017

In December 2017, Burlington Taxi supported two local community initiatives to help spread some holiday cheer.

Socks for the Homeless

Pile of SocksFrom December 1-18, Burlington Taxi, along with our local sock box hosts collected nearly 4,000 pairs of socks for people in need. We partnered with the organization “Your Little Bit of Help”, who assembled the socks into gift bags along with other personal care items, and delivered them to people in need on Christmas Day.

It took 4 vehicles, 7 elves and countless hours to get nearly 100 gift bags delivered to organizations like the Angel Project, Compassion Society, Inasmuch House and Mission Services. We also collected hundreds of pairs of children’s socks, which will be distributed to Halton Schools in the new year.

Thank to you our sock box hosts and to everyone who donated socks during the campaign!

Driving Mr. & Mrs. Claus

Mr. and Mrs. Claus In Front of TaxiOn December 22, in celebration of the last day of school,  Mr. and Mrs. Claus drove for us, picking up lucky customers who were treated to free rides. Burlington Taxi covered their fare and donated the amount to the Halton Learning Foundation in support of their “No Student Left Behind” campaign.

We raised more than $500 from the trips and Burlington Taxi has matched it to donate a total of $1,000 to the Halton Learning Foundation.

Special thanks goes to our drivers Gary Ross and Sheryl Silverthorne for spending the day driving in costume for us and spreading Christmas cheer.

Free Rides with Mr. & Mrs. Claus

In the Spirit of Christmas

On December 22, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be moonlighting for Burlington Taxi, picking up lucky customers throughout the day. If Mr. or Mrs. Claus is driving your taxi, your ride is FREE!

Burlington Taxi will cover your fare, and donate the amount to the Halton Learning Foundation in support of their “No Student Left Behind” campaign.

No Student Left Behind

The Halton Learning Foundation provides emergency funds to support students whose families are facing extraordinary financial challenges, such as a job loss or illness.  Today, 6,500 students in our HDSB schools risk being left behind because they don’t have warm clothes, enough food to eat or can’t afford to participate in school trips and activities.

These funds help a local student come to school, participate in learning experiences with their classmates, and stay engaged in their education, while providing relief to families.

You can support the campaign by purchasing a gift, or making any monetary donation. For more information, please visit https://www.haltonlearningfoundation.ca/.

We are honoured to support Your Little Bit of Help in it’s annual Christmas morning delivery to shelters in Hamilton & Burlington, and also to vulnerable families through the Halton Schoolboard. Our contribution is SOCKS!  We were surprised to learn that SOCKS are one of the most valued but least donated articles of clothing in shelters across Ontario. Particularly MEN’S SOCKS.

Here’s how to donate a pair of NEW SOCKS:

  1. Give your NEW SOCKS to any Burlington Taxi Driver
  2. We will deliver you a SOCK BOX so you may gather from family, friends & colleagues
  3. Or bring NEW SOCKS to the Burlington’s Christmas Parade December 3d. Elves will collect! 

For more information email us community@burlingtontaxi.com


A very large thank you to the following organizations and companies that are hosting their own SOCK Drive in support of Your Little Bit of Help. Let’s beat last year’s record of 3,000 pairs of socks! We can do it! Every single pair of SOCKS makes a difference.
