Collision Industry Foundation Donates $5,000 to Feeding America

The Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) has announced that it has provided $5,000 in donations to Feeding America through the "Crash Hunger" program.
 
CIF board members Jeanne Silver, Tracy Tramm and Paul Jones presented Sharon Hurwitz of Feeding America with a check for $5,000 on March 14, 2011. Said Hurwitz, "No gift is too small. A dollar can provide a meal for many families. The Feeding America website, www.feedingamerica.org, has a database of food banks across the country." 

"The hunger statistics in America are staggering. FinishMaster would like to thank its customers for participating in last year’s Dollar Drive Campaign that raised almost $2,000," said Paul Jones, regional vice president of FinishMaster. "The Collision Industry Foundation decided to make an additional contribution to this campaign. When combined, CIF was able to present Feeding America with a check for $5,000. These funds will be used to help people continue the fight against hunger on behalf of the collision repair industry."

Shops, vendors and anyone willing to participate can get their customers to help support this campaign for just $1 at a time through preprinted donation pads.

"Feeding America is a vital connection between the collision repair industry and Food Banks all over the country," said Jeanne Silver, CARSTAR Mundelein. "Industry members can volunteer at their local food banks or organize a fundraising initiative through the CIF Crash Hunger dollar donation pad sales. No one should be hungry in America, and everyone can help end hunger with as little as a dollar."

Donation pads are available for Crash Hunger through CIF. Each pad is $50 for 50 sheets at $1 donation per sheet. Businesses are encouraged to have a donation pad at each location. They’re asked to display each "bought" donation sheet on their wall, thus encouraging greater participation by their customers. They may also display the employees’ names as the donors if they so desire.

To order pads or for more information about this program, contact CIF at (804) 427-6982. Each pad is $50 with no limit on the number of pads that may be purchased. Credit cards, checks and money orders accepted.
