As part of our Restoring You program, a token of our appreciation for their efforts and true to our purpose of Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life®, Caliber gifted four fully restored vehicles to frontline workers in the Dallas area. Through our partnership with NABC’s Recycled Rides®, our technicians from four Dallas/Fort Worth centers volunteered their time and expertise to fully restore these vehicles to pre-accident condition. Thanks to the public’s nominations, we were able to identify remarkable frontline heroes to receive the gift of reliable transportation.
