Caliber, which encompasses a portfolio of automotive services brands including Caliber Collision, Caliber Auto Care, and Caliber Auto Glass, will host the 10th annual Restoring You Food Drive beginning April 12. The seven-week program, which is part of Caliber’s Restoring You platform, supports childhood hunger relief, specifically children who rely on subsidized meals during the school year and lose that reliable meal source during the summer. We are excited to be partnering with more than 80 local food banks in our effort to alleviate childhood hunger in the communities we serve.
According to Feeding America, households with children have a substantially higher rate of food insecurity than any other group in the United States. Data further suggests this crisis has been exacerbated in the past year as food insecurity for families has more than tripled since the onset of the pandemic in the U.S. As a result, nearly 13 million kids in America – almost one in six – may not know where they will get their next meal.
This year, we are adding extra support by matching all monetary donations at a rate of 25% during the food drive. Anyone can make a monetary donation or contribute non-perishable food at all Caliber locations across 35 states from April 12 - May 28. As always, 100% of the donations go to local food banks and just one dollar will provide six meals to children in need. Donations can also be made online or during service checkout in Caliber centers. All donations made to the Restoring You Food Drive, as a part of the Caliber Foundation, are tax-deductible.
