Allstate, Sterling to donate Recycled Rides vehicles
Nov. 21, 2011—Allstate Insurance Co. and Sterling Autobody Centers recently announced the companies will donate refurbished vehicles to families in need this week through the National Auto Body Council's (NABC) Recycled Rides program.
Recycled Rides donation events are scheduled to happen simultaneously in multiple U.S. cities Nov. 21 and Nov. 22.
Nick Notte, president of Sterling Autobody Centers and co-chairman of the NABC’s Recycled Rides program, said Allstate donated 60 vehicles for the 2011 initiative, more than any other single insurer participant. Technicians at Sterling Autobody Centers restored 36 of those vehicles, more than any other single repairer or consolidator.
"Our participation in the Recycled Rides program is an extension of Allstate's commitment to serve the communities in which we do business," said Randy Hanson, auto director for Allstate. "It is an honor to provide reliable transportation and help get families across the country to their jobs, doctor's appointments or other places they couldn't go without a ride."
"Sterling Autobody Centers has adopted the National Auto Body Council's Recycled Rides project as a corporate initiative,” Notte said. "It makes perfect sense—using the resources of insurers and suppliers to provide the canvas on which repairers can showcase their craft as an art, and to benefit deserving charities and families around the country. We look forward to changing the lives of the many families and organizations that we'll touch.”
