Caliber Collision, one of the country’s largest collision repair companies, marshalled its vast network of more than 1,000 repair centers across the country to collect a record 5.4 million meals to feed at-risk children over the summer months.
Caliber’s Annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive helped re-stock the shelves for 85 regional food banks whose supplies are low this time of year due to higher demand from families whose children do not have access to school lunches during the summer.
The company’s network of more than 20,000 teammates rallied customers, business partners and local communities to donate cash and food items.
Over the past eight years, Caliber’s annual food drive has become the largest in the collision repair company, collecting more than 20 million meals.
According to Feeding America, of the 22 million children who receive free and reduced-price lunches during the school year, only 4 million continue to receive subsidized meals over the summer months.
“The continued record-breaking growth of our annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive year after year is a testament to the incredible spirit of our teammates who are inspired to serve,” said Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision CEO. “We are very proud of our teammates and grateful to our business partners, customers and friends in the community who have joined us to help put a dent in childhood hunger.”
