NABC Gifts Four Vehicles Through Recycled Rides
DETROIT, Aug. 1, 2014—The National Auto Body Council (NABC) gifted vehicles to Detroit-area individuals and organizations in need through its Recycled Rides program during the 2014 NACE/CARS Expo & Conference.
Recipients of the vehicles included Earnest Matthews, a U.S. Army veteran; Latoya Seales, a recently widowed mother of two; Deb Gregory, a domestic abuse survivor; and Family Promise of Toledo, an organization which helps families successfully transition from homelessness to independent living.
Recycled Rides is a national effort in which NABC members refurbish and donate vehicles to families and service organizations in need of transportation. Body shops donate labor to refurbish the vehicles, and various insurers and vendors make in-kind donations to complete the projects.
Companies that contributed to the Detroit recipients included Allstate Insurance, GEICO, Hertz, Service King, Butler’s Collision, Tech-Cor Collision Repair and Collision Craftsmen.
Recipients were selected by Michigan Veterans Foundation, Family Promise of Genesee County and 1-800 Charity Cars.
