NABC Donates Six Vehicles in Las Vegas
Nov. 9, 2016—The National Auto Body Council (NABC) recently donated vehicles to six Las Vegas residents, at the organization's annual Recycled Rides luncheon in conjunction with the 2016 SEMA Show.
Recipients of the refurbished vehicles included: Patrick Kelly, a Marine veteran; Jeffrey Hicks, a Navy veteran; and local residents Brigitte Garces, Debbie Hatfield, Suidi Ali and Lorae Chadwick, who were all in need of reliable transportation. Vehicles for this year's giveaway were donated by Allstate, GEICO, State Farm, USAA, Enterprise and Hertz, and refurbished by Caliber Collision, Fix Auto Henderson, Gaudin Ford, Gerber Collision & Glass, and Rupert's Auto Body.
"Lack of transportation is often a major obstacle for individuals and families trying to recover from catastrophic circumstances such as unexpected job loss and homelessness," said Chuck Sulkala, executive director of the National Auto Body Council. "We are proud [of] the collaborative effort of many NABC members who, through Recycled Rides, help change lives."
Recycled Rides is a national program which provides refurbished vehicles to those in need. Since the program's inception in 2007, members of the NABC have donated nearly 1,300 vehicles.
