Central Collision Center, a multi-location collision repair company serving the Chicago area, delivered 5,413 items collected through its annual Thanksgiving food drive to Alicia’s House Food Pantry, a local non-profit organization that strives to alleviate hunger.
The company asked employees, customers and their business partners to donate non-perishable food items and unopened toiletries from Nov. 1-21. During that time frame, the company collected a total of 2,572 items. Central Collision then provided a 100 percent match on all donations plus additional food items, yielding its final donation total.
“I’m so impressed that our team was able to nearly double our donation total from last year’s food drive,” said Mike Caruso, president and owner of Central Collision. “That just shows you the type of people they are—caring and committed, whether it’s at work or working to help others.”
