Caliber Collision teamed up with its insurance partners to provide transportation to active-duty service members and veterans, families transitioning from homelessness into independent living, single parents and nonprofit support service organizations.

Caliber Collision’s insurance partners for its Recycled Rides program in 2015 included Allstate, Auto Club of Southern California, Esurance, Farmers, GEICO, State Farm and Travelers. The company also purchased vehicles through its Caliber Foundation to repair and donate.

“Recycled Rides reflects our highest purpose, which is to restore our customers and the communities we serve to the rhythm of their lives,” said Caliber CEO Steve Grimshaw. “As we continue to grow and expand, our teammates across the country are equally committed to restoring hope to individuals and families by removing barriers due to a lack of transportation.”

Caliber Collision in Sterling, Va., and GEICO gifted a vehicle to a wounded warrior recovering at Ft. Belvoir from injuries suffered while on active duty in Afghanistan.

Over the past three-and-a-half years, Caliber Collision has donated more than 75 vehicles across the U.S. amounting to more than $750,000 in support of those in need.

“We thank our insurance partners and many others in our industry whose collaboration enables us to collectively make a positive impact in our communities,” said Grimshaw. “We look forward to setting even higher goals for Recycled Rides donations in 2016 and look forward to working with the National Auto Body Council and our collision industry colleagues to give back to our veterans and those in need of transportation.”
