April 17, 2012—C.D.E. Collision Damage Experts, a collision repair operation with locations in Illinois and Indiana, on Monday announced the opening of its fifth facility in Crown Point, Ind.

C.D.E. Collision Damage Experts will host a grand opening celebration at its new facility May 10 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

As part of the grand opening celebration, the company will feature its “Mother’s Day Car for a Cause!” initiative. C.D.E. Collision Damage Experts said it will donate a 2006 Ford 500 vehicle to a mother in need of reliable transportation for Mother’s Day.

C.D.E. Collision Damage Experts is currently working with the St. Jude House Family Violence Prevention Center and Shelter in Crown Point, Ind., to identify an appropriate candidate to gift the vehicle to. The St. Jude House serves as a safe shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

C.D.E. Collision Damage Experts said it is also working with various local businesses to sponsor the vehicle donation to help supply gas cards, insurance, oil change certificates, tire rotations and other miscellaneous car expenses. 

“Vehicle maintenance can be very costly, and supplying these items makes this vehicle truly a gift,” C.D.E. Collision Damage Experts said.

The company will donate the vehicle during a special ceremony at 7 p.m. during the grand opening celebration of its new shop location May 10.
