NABC Recycled Rides Gives Away Vehicle to Long Island Woman
March 12, 2018—A Patchogue, N.Y., woman was gifted a vehicle at the Patchogue Fire Department.
Nilza Rodriguez was introduced to NABC’s Recycled Ride program, hosted by The Collision Centers through the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk County. Rodriguez is a single mother of three and has been working with EOC to help ease the burden of being a single income family.
“Nilza is bright and articulate woman… a car would be one less thing to worry about as she manages to pay bills and feed her children”, said Anna Maddux of EOC.
Previously, Rodriguez would walk to and from work, as well as walk to pick up her children each day. Now after receiving her 2013 Dodge Dart, she can complete her day to day tasks much easier.
The Recycled Ride Ceremony took place on Friday, March 6 at 2:30 p.m. at the Patchogue Fire Department.
The vehicle was donated by Allstate Insurance and repaired by The Collision Centers through the National Auto Body Council’s Recycle Rides Program.
The program ensures deserving citizens without safe and operational vehicles have cars or vans that meet their needs and the needs of their families.
