Taxi Drivers Will Donate Thousands To Families In Need

Taxi Drivers will Deliver $3000 Check to Northwest Harvest on Friday, December 20 at 11 A.M.   

SEATTLE, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Puget Sound taxicab operators will be making a special trip this Friday.  The drivers will be traveling to Northwest Harvest, where they will deliver a $3000 donation to the food bank in a show of solidarity and support of families in need this holiday season.


Members of the Western Washington Taxicab Operators Association (WWTCOA) will present food bank administrators with an oversized 3-foot check at 11 A.M.  The WWTCOA, in partnership with Teamsters Local 117, started collecting the donations from taxicab operators shortly before Thanksgiving. 

"We live and work here in the community, and this is our way of giving back during the holidays," said Parminder Cheema, a member of the WWTCOA Leadership Council.  "It is our way of saying, 'Thank you' to the community that helps provide for our families by choosing taxis to get around town.  As independent owner-operators of our cabs, we rely on the community for their support."

WHO: Salah Mohamed Abdi, WWTCOA Leadership Council Jagjit Singh, WWTCOA Leadership Council Parminder Cheema, WWTCOA Leadership Council Dawn Gearhart, Teamsters Local 117 Puget Sound Taxicab Operators
