To help celebrate all that we’re thankful for this holiday season, we were pleased to support Midwest Food Bank again with our third annual Battle of the Floors food drive.

Harnessing the power of our competitive edge, each of the five floors at the ADESA and KAR Auction Services headquarters went head-to-head to see who could bring in the most donations. And in tradition, the winners earned the privilege to wear jeans to work for the week.

Not only did we surpass our efforts from 2011 and 2012, we are all enjoying a week of wearing jeans.

More than 6,800 food items and an additional $966 for more food items were collectively donated to Midwest Food Bank. Making a comeback from 2011, the fifth floor took first place this year, followed by the third and fourth floors, respectively.

I’m proud to be part of such a generous group of people, a testament to the spirit of the industry. Thank you to everyone for rallying together around another incredible effort to support our community.

ADESA and KAR Auction Services gathered more than 6,800 food items for Midwest Food Bank in 2013.
