|Caliber Collision Revs Up Food Drive To Benefit Low Country Food Bank

As another school year draws to a close, Caliber Collision is revving up its’ 5th annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive to help the Low Country Food Bank provide meals for children who need food over the summer break.
Caliber Collision has set up food collection bins at each of its five centers in Goose Creek, North Charleston, and Charleston and urges the community to drop off food items or cash donations during its food drive from Monday June 6 through Friday June 24.
The local Caliber locations are part of a company-wide goal to collect 3.5 million meals – over 50% more than last year’s record-breaking total of 2.5 million meals.
According to Feeding America, chronic illness is reported to be higher among children who struggle with hunger and the lack of adequate nutrition can literally change the structure of a child's brain and affect learning. Despite an improved economy, over 15 million children today still live in food insecure households.
“We need to double our efforts to restore the rhythm of regular meals for children who depend on school lunches, so they can continue to receive the nutrition they need during the summer months,” said Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision Chief Executive Officer. “I am proud of our more than 8,800 teammates, along with supplier partners and insurance clients, who are contributing their time, energy and efforts to help kids in need across the local communities we serve.”
Grimshaw added that Caliber Collision has committed to a corporate matching contribution for local food banks based on the amount of cash donations and food items collected by Caliber teammates in each local community.
Non-perishable food items or cash donations can be dropped off at any of the Caliber Collision locations listed below. The food bank cannot accept glass or open containers, perishable or homemade items.
