Newstart Canada Believes in Giving Back to Our Community
In April of 2014, NewStart was able to donate a restored Hurst/Olds to Hearts of Durham to help raise money for our community. Hearts of Durham is a volunteer group working to support and reinvest in their community of Durham.

In June of 2009, after hearing a news story about Gaile Kelly having her motorized scooter stolen, Dave Baker and NewStart Canada were able to donate a brand new scooter.
Story of Woman’s Plight Inspires Act of Generosity From NewStart Canada
“A Scarborough company has given an Oshawa woman a new link to the outside world just hours after her story appeared in the Sun.”
Gaile Kelly, 54, had her motorized wheelchair stolen sometime late Sunday or early Monday, leaving her trapped in her small one-bedroom apartment above a body-shop.
Yesterday, in a small ceremony outside NewStart Canada’s Kingston Rd. office, Kelly was given a scooter, a royal blue 2009 Daymak Boomer Buggy IV, free of charge, right off the showroom floor.
Baker said he decided to donate the scooter after reading Kelly’s story in the Sun yesterday. “When one person can give to another person it always makes you feel good,” he said. “She’s got the latest and the greatest, it’s got a full warranty.”
