At Caliber, we’re committed to supporting our nation’s Military Service Members and letting them know we’ll be there for them, even when the road gets a little rocky. And seeing as Veterans Day is in two weeks, we’d like to turn our headlights on a few of the many ways we’re honoring our heroes, including programs geared toward saluting their service and sacrifice. Thanks to our team’s unified desire to give back to our troops, we’ve been able to accomplish some amazing things over the years.
For many of our Military Service Members and their families, finding reliable means of transportation for work, medical appointments and other necessary errands can prove challenging. That’s why we participate heavily in the Recycled Rides program, which serves to alleviate this struggle by presenting very deserving families with newly refurbished vehicles. In the past five years, we’ve gifted more than 130 vehicles to families in need, and we look forward to many more years of participation and positive impact down the road.
As collision repair experts and avid football fans, we know a thing or two about hits. That’s why we hit the ground running to team up with the Dallas Cowboys and create our annual Military Combine benefiting Military Service Members. It’s a day of fierce fun, filled with active-duty soldiers going head to head in a gauntlet of the same drills one would find at the NFL Combine. From the sidelines, we cheer them on, making sure to always go the extra mile for our veterans – even in the game of inches.
The transition from active duty to civilian life can be full of unexpected challenges, and we believe in giving those who have given so much the keys to a stable and promising career. That’s why we offer our Changing Lanes program – a free 18-week career skills program that provides soldiers with the training required to help them start a career in collision repair. And, upon successful completion, we actively look for job placement opportunities across the U.S. We’re honored to have these heroes on our team and look forward to all of the lives we’ll restore together.
American Airlines Sky Ball:
For the second year, we’re proud to sponsor the American Airlines Sky Ball, a premier fundraising event for one of the oldest military support organizations in the country. At last year’s event, we surprised three law enforcement and military service members with refurbished vehicles as a part of our aforementioned Recycled Rides program. This year, we’re excited to continue that trend and gift three more vehicles, ensuring another thrilling ride for more of our nation’s veterans.
It’s incredibly gratifying to call our great country “Home,” and we’re perpetually honored to support the Military Service Members who protect our freedom to do so. We salute your service and are forever humbled by your sacrifice. From all of us here at Caliber, thank you, and we’ll always be ready when it comes to restoring the rhythm of your life.
