The Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) announced it has partnered with FinishMaster in its Shops Against Hunger initiative. During the months of May and June, FinishMaster is asking its customers to join the fight against hunger in America by providing a section on their monthly statements which enables customers to make a $1.00 donation to the Collision Industry Foundation’s 2010 Shops Against Hunger effort.
"We are pleased that FinishMaster recognizes the good works of the Shops Against Hunger program within CIF," said Jeanne Silver, CIF chair. "They have stepped up in a big way and created a vehicle by which each of their repair facility customers can give a little and make a huge difference. We hope that other companies will consider similar campaigns."
Jim Muse, vice president of business development for FinishMaster, Inc. and CIF board of trustees member added, "According to the USDA, 49.1 million people live in food-insecure households, 16.1 of those are children. These are staggering numbers. By sharing this information with our customers and offering a seamless way for them to make a $1 donation, we believe we are sending an important message at a time when many people have had to cut back on their charitable giving that no contribution is too small."
