How a Local Business Is Getting National Attention for Its Local Impact
New Mexico's Calibers Shooting Center raises money and donates resources to community causes.

Calibers didn't hesitate to donate a new (and much more secure) safe to them and even professionally installed it. Calibers sells a number of safes and thought it was the most impactful way they could do to help a wonderful organization.
"Doing good work in New Mexico is part of what makes the Calibers community so special. We want people to know that the good guys outnumber the bad guys,"

Every year during the holidays, they partake in several community-centered events. This year they raised money for Breast Cancer Awareness with the local Hooters restaurants.

Calibers is getting involved with other charitable organizations in the area, including Toys for Tots and the canned food drive with Roadrunner Food Bank. If you'd like to help, please bring unopened cans of food or unwrapped toys to any of their locations state-wide. You can also donate to one of the many community causes supported by Calibers online.
