Louisiana AutoBody Express Facility Donates Cars to Veterans
Nov. 1, 2016—A pair of veterans and their families were recently chosen to receive newly refurbished vehicles courtesy of AutoBody Express-Bossier City (Louisiana), as part of the national Recycled Rides program. The keys to a 2013 Chrysler Town and Country and a 2015 Chrysler 200 were presented to the veterans over the weekend.
The recipients included Airman First Class Morgan, an Air Force non-destructive inspections technician, and Air Force Airman Benchehda, a member of the security forces.
“We understand the need for reliable transportation. We’re excited to give these vehicles to two very worthy recipients,” said Staten Fontaine, owner-operator of AutoBody Express-Bossier. “We are honored to thank them for their service to our country.”
The Recycled Rides program is a nationwide community service project by the National Auto Body Council in which collision repair companies, insurers and rental car companies collaborate to refurbish vehicles for those in need.
