In Clark County, nearly 14,000 meals were donated as part of Caliber Collision's 5th Annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive.
The company collected over 3.1 million meals nationwide, along with $334,000 in cash donations for 37 food banks. Locally, the donations benefitted Three Square Food Bank.
The campaign's goal was to bring awareness to the issue of childhood hunger.
Feeding America says that 1 in 5 children in the U.S. worry about when they'll have their next meal. Studies show that malnutrition is especially devastating in childhood, as proper nutrition is critical to a child's physical, emotional, and learning development. The problem is especially severe during the summer months when children do not have access to regular school lunch programs.
“Giving back to our local communities is an integral part of Caliber’s core values,” said Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision Chief Executive Officer. “I am proud of our 9,000 teammates who worked tirelessly over the three-week drive to raise a record breaking amount of meals for kids in need. We thank our business and community partners who have joined with us to restore the rhythm of life for children across the 16 states that Caliber serves.”
