California Shop Donates 60th Vehicle
Aug. 16, 2016—Mike’s Auto Body, a 15-location California MSO, recently completed renovations on its Napa location and celebrated the expansion by giving away a vehicle as part of its 16-year-old Benevolence program.
Cassidy Nolan, a military veteran and Napa Valley Community College student, along with his wife Jillian and two daughters received a 2015 Chrysler 200 that had been donated by Hertz Rent A Car and refurbished by Mike’s Auto Body. It is the 60th vehicle that Mike’s Auto Body has given away through its Benevolence program. Mike’s Auto Body also paid for one year of insurance provided by a local State Farm agent.
"This is a phenomenal gift and we are extremely grateful,” said Nolan. “It will enable us to continue performing our service to veterans here in Napa through my involvement in the Veteran's Club at NVC, where we have approximately 200 veterans enrolled there. We love this vehicle and we are hoping one day that our daughters can drive it to and from school, many years from now."
"It is very satisfying, that's for sure," Sal Contreras, a Mike’s Auto Body employee involved in the Benevolence program, said. "We have been doing this for a long time, with exactly 60 cars given away now. Mike Rose and his family made a commitment to helping the community in every area where we do business many years ago and the Benevolence Program has become the cornerstone of all our charitable efforts here at Mike's Auto Body."
