For millions of kids, summer break means a break from reliable school lunches. And without proper nourishment, these kids are more likely to repeat a grade, have social and behavioral problems, or experience certain development impairments. That's why they've turned to those of us at Caliber to help fill tanks by filling the local food banks. And we're proud to say, yet again, we did nothing short of fire - and fill - on all cylinders.
As America's #1 collision repair company, our communities are our #1 priority. That's why we started the Rythm Restoration Food Drive: an effort created to rally customers, local business partners and the general public, all with the goal of donating food and cash to help subsidize meals during the summer months. And, for the past seven years, we've all come together to hit the brakes on hungry kids - because one in six kids shouldn't have to spend the summer running on empty.
From April 9 to May 18, thousands of you came together to donate as much as you could, spreading the word to family and friends, and spreading the joy of a full plate. And thanks to you, we successfully put a huge dent in the number of at-risk children for the summer. By setting up donation stations at our 560+ locations nationwide we were able to donate millions meals to local food banks all across America, helping fuel these kids through another summer of hard-earned fun.
Thank you to everyone who participated. We, truly, could not have done it without you. It's with this kind of drive and commitment to our communities that makes Caliber so proud to restore the rhythm of your life.
Don't forget to check out some of our favorite donation stations, set up by the fine folks from Caliber centers all across the country.
