Collision repair is about people helping people

who find themselves in a difficult situation, often through no fault of their own. It’s not just about putting cars back together — it’s about making people whole again. The collision repair community — including body shops, paint, parts, equipment and insurance companies — has been doing this for a long time.

And sometimes, the collision industry goes above and beyond the call of duty to make things a little bit brighter for those less fortunate. This section honors the shops and suppliers that take that additional step.

Caliber Collision Food Drive Provides 275,000 Meals for At-Risk Kids

In one of the largest food drives in the collision repair industry, Caliber Collision employees collected a record amount of food and cash donations in June that resulted in more than 275,000 meals for at-risk children in five states.

Caliber Collision locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Oklahoma participated in the company's second annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive from June 3 through June 21. The company-wide program is aimed at providing meals for at-risk children who may go hungry during summer months without regular school lunches.

Nobody should have to run on empty 

The company said this year's food drive resulted in 40 percent more meals than last year's effort, significantly exceeding company-wide goals. In addition to the food items collected, Caliber also provided a corporate donation of $10,000.

"We are very proud of the way our associates routinely set and exceed goals that help restore our customers and the communities we serve to the rhythm of their lives," said Steve Grimshaw, President & CEO of Caliber Collision. "We want to thank our many partners, customers, colleagues and 15 local food banks who joined us in our efforts to restore the rhythm of regular meals for children throughout the southwest U.S."
