Some taxi cabs in Duluth were put to good use Monday helping needy families before Christmas.

Custom Cab was delivering food baskets providing families with a Christmas meal. People were able to nominate families in need on the company's Web site.

50 families were chosen and received a basket full of goodies Monday afternoon. Custom Cab employees said it feels good to help out.

"The community does so much for us," Allyson Thompson said. "They are keeping us running with our cabs. They're calling us day and night so we just want to give back and help out and make sure our families have a holiday meal."

This is the second time Custom Cab has delivered food to needy families. The basket was filled with ham, potatoes, rolls and veggies. There was also a pumpkin pie and whipped cream.
