Caliber Collision Food Drive in Charleston Part of Nationwide Goal of 5 Million Meals for Children

In its ongoing commitment to fight childhood hunger, Caliber Collision is raising the bar with a goal to collect 5 million meals during its 6th Annual Restoration Food Drive, from April 17 to May 19.

Locally in the Charleston area, food and cash donations collected by Caliber’s five locations will benefit Low Country Food Bank.

As the largest collision repair company in the U.S., Caliber is partnering with its network of teammates, customers, business partners, schools and local communities to increase the number of meals collected in 2017 by 60%.

Caliber’s annual Food Drive is a grassroots effort driven by teammates nationwide who challenge each other in friendly competitions while hosting a wide variety of fun activities that engage and encourage their local communities to donate cash and food items. 

According to Feeding America, while most kids and parents eagerly look forward to the end of the school year and vacation, nearly 18 million children in the U.S. who depend on school lunches will go hungry during the summer.

“With an army of 10,000 dedicated and passionate teammates across the country, we know we can make a significant impact on childhood hunger,” said Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Chief Executive Officer.  “The continuing success of our Food Drive is a tribute to our teammates who are inspired to serve and our customers and partners, who generously support our efforts to restore the rhythm of regular meals during the summer months for kids in need.”

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. 

Collection centers are set up at each of Caliber’s five store locations for food and cash contributions. Donations can also be made online at CaliberDonations.com.
