AudaExplore Makes Donation to 1-800 Charity Cars
Sept. 14, 2015—AudaExlore, a Solera Company, donated $40,000 to Original 1-800 Charity Cars, the company announced on Friday. The donation will help underwrite the organization’s role in furthering the goals of the National Auto Body Council’s (NABC) Recycled Rides program.
The Original 1-800 Charity Cars, a nonprofit organization and a licensed car dealer, provides support to NABC members to coordinate the titling and registration of vehicles through the Recycled Rides program. Since the beginning of Recycled Rides in 2007, the Original 1-800 Charity Cars has partnered with the NABC and donated resources to help reassign the vehicle title from the donor to the recipient, a multi-step process that minimizes liability while maximizing benefit for all the parties involved.
“This critical facet of the Recycled Rides process is what has enabled the National Auto Body Council and its members to successfully grow the program, donate nearly 1,000 vehicles and positively change the lives of thousands of individuals,” said Rick Tuuri, vice president of AudaExplore, and NABC Board member and Chairman of Recycled Rides. “We are truly proud to support Recycled Rides and 1-800 Charity Cars”.
1-800 Charity Cars takes over responsibility of the donated vehicle while it is repaired at NABC’s member body shops. 1-800 Charity Cars signs all necessary liability releases and completes necessary documents required state by state to transfer the title and register the vehicle to the recipient. The organization is also able to provide necessary documentation for tax purposes.
“NABC’s partnership with 1-800 Charity Cars has been invaluable in the success of Recycled Rides over the years,” said Chuck Sulkala, Executive Director of the National Auto Body Council. “We applaud and thank AudaExplore for its generous contribution to help ensure we have the resources necessary to keep growing this program.”
