Caliber Collision held its 5th annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive and collected food and donations totally $1,500, which will provide nearly 13,000 meals in southern Arizona, according to a recent release. 

"Giving back to our local communities is an integral part of Caliber’s core values," said Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision Chief Executive Officer, in a recent release. "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."

This was part of a nationwide collection of $334,000 and thousands of pounds of food, to help provide 3.1 million meals to provide at-risk children during the summer months across the U.S.
