Since the beginning of the year, we at Caliber have extended our long-standing community support efforts to address a growing issue facing communities nationwide during the pandemic: rising food insecurity. With our purpose of Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life®, Caliber initiated the ninth annual Restoring You Food Drive, entirely virtual this year, in partnership with 72 local/regional food banks across the nation. Thanks to the help of Caliber teammates, customers, and partners, we’re pleased to have raised more than 1.6 million meals to specifically address the food scarcity needs of children in the communities we’re proud to serve.
According to Feeding America, one in four children worry about their next meal, with 18 million facing hunger due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Public demand for food bank services is at historic highs, driving Caliber’s 21,500+ teammates nationwide to remain vigilant about community service by collecting online donations that will feed children and families in need throughout the holidays.
“I continue to be amazed by Caliber teammates’ passion and dedication to living our purpose of Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life by improving the lives of our teammates and the communities we serve,” Caliber’s incoming CEO, Mark Sanders, said. “For the “Restoring You” Food Drive, in particular, this has resulted in raising more than 23 million meals over the past nine years, and is one of the accomplishments that we are most proud of as a Caliber family.”
Caliber, which encompasses Caliber Auto Care, Caliber Auto Glass, and Caliber Collision, the nation’s largest automotive repair provider (with 1,200+ centers across 34 states), remains committed to easing childhood hunger by supporting essential food bank programs. These programs, in turn, serve children and their families who are now at even greater risk of food scarcity and rely on subsidized meals.
