Organization supports Hunger Action Month and encourages industry to volunteer throughout September.
The Collision Industry Foundation’s (CIF) "Crash Hunger" program has recently donated $5,000 to Feeding America. With this contribution, the organization has now provided more than $10,000 to America’s fight against hunger.
In support of Hunger Action Month (September), CIF is asking the collision industry to volunteer during the month, as well as get involved with local food banks.
CIF is now recognized as one on Feeding America’s corporate partners. According to Feeding America’s 2011 annual report, "These organizations have made contributions of $5,000-$99,000, which has help to feed more than 37 million Americans in need last year."
"Hunger is very real in these difficult times, with children comprising the largest number of food recipients," commented Bill Shaw, CIF president."The folks at Feeding America told us that families that never needed help are showing up at food pantries. These are our neighbors, these are Americans. We felt inspired and ready to work with Feeding America as a true partner to work toward ending hunger in America. We know that food pantries are in many cities in the United States, and provide the greatest opportunity for members of our industry to work together as volunteers and contributors of food or donations. September is going to be a great month for us all to come together and help in our own communities with food collections, donations and volunteering at a local food pantry."
"The support of the Collision Industry Foundation will provide the equivalent of 40,000 meals to Americans who are fighting food insecurity," said Leah Rah, vice president of corporate partnerships for Feeding America. "Feeding America is grateful to partners like the CIF, whose commitment to hunger relief impacts thousands of lives."
