Food drive helps stock summer shelves

By  | 

RENO, NV (KOLO) - Millions of kids run on empty during the summer without access to school lunches. Caliber Collision locations throughout the Reno area are holding the 8th Annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive through May 10 to help ensure kids can fill up their tanks and enjoy their summer vacation.

All cash and food donations collected will be donated to Food for Thought to help keep their shelves stocked during summer months when demand from children and their families is highest.

Thousands of teammates at Caliber Collision across the country have committed to a goal to collect 5 million meals nationwide. More than 85 food banks will benefit from Caliber Collision’s annual food drive efforts across the United States.

“We’re asking our local communities to help us fill local food banks and kids’ tanks, so they do not spend the summer running on empty,” said Steve Grimshaw, Chief Executive Officer. “At Caliber, our purpose is to restore the rhythm of your life for our customers, teammates, clients, and the communities we serve. We are equally committed to help restore the rhythm of regular meals for at-risk children over the summer.”

Collection centers for cash and food donations are located at each of Caliber’s two locations in Washoe County. Online cash donations can also be made at FoodDriveDonations.com.
