As the holiday season begins, ADESA and its auction locations are gearing up to help local communities across the country.

Last year, ADESA and the KAR business units located at our headquarters participated in our inaugural company-wide food drive. The results were absolutely astounding. Not only did we collect thousands of items to help families in need, but also received an incredible response from our team members.

This November, we challenged our employees once again to open their hearts and donate goods to help Midwest Food Bank. The items collected would help feed local families during Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season. Similar to 2011’s challenge, we put a competitive twist on the food drive, turning it into a “Battle of the Floors.” This year, the fifth floor came out on top with the most points and the right to wear jeans to work for a week. With everyone’s help, we donated more than 4,100 items to the Midwest Food Bank.

Thank you to all our employees for their continued generosity and commitment to making a positive impact.
