The National Auto Body Council (NABC) will donate six vehicles to families in need through its Recycled Rides program during the 2012 NACE Expo in New Orleans. The donation will take place Oct. 11 at 1 p.m. at NABC’s booth # N1951.
Four local shops in the New Orleans area donated their time to refurbish the vehicles, including Car Craft Collision Centers, Champ's Collision Centers, Collision Xperts and Fradella's Collision Center.
The NABC said four insurance companies donated the vehicles for refurbishing—Allstate, Esurance, GEICO, Progressive and State Farm. Enterprise Rent-A-Car donated a vehicle as well.
“The goal is to help people help themselves,” said Chuck Sulkala, the executive director of the NABC. “And all of the industry segments commit to playing a part in seeing that happens. Most that participate find it a life-changing experience.”
