Chicago’s Central Collision Donates Over 5,400 Items to Local Food Shelf
Nov. 27, 2013—On Monday morning, Central Collision Center delivered 5,413 items to Alicia’s House Food Pantry in South Chicago Heights as a result of the company’s annual Thanksgiving food drive.
Central Collision, which has seven locations in the Chicago area, asked employees, customers and business partners to donate non-perishable food items and unopened toiletries from Nov. 1–21. In those three weeks, the company collected 2,572 items. Central Collision provided a 100 percent match on all donations plus additional food items, bringing the donation total to 5,413 items.
“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.”
