The project was part of a nationwide vehicle donation program called Recycled Rides, a community awareness project whereby members of the National Auto Body Council (NABC) repair and donate recycled vehicles to families in need. As part of this program, simultaneous vehicle donations took place throughout the country in the month of November.
“We are exceptionally pleased with the results of the project,” said Gene Hamilton, owner of Sports & Imports Collision. “The vehicle was well received and all of our staff worked hard to make the donation a reality. The Burse family was extremely grateful and we wish them a great holiday season. Hopefully, having this vehicle will brighten their lives and make it easier for them to accomplish the daily tasks most of us take for granted.
“I want to thank our staff. This would not have happened without their efforts.
“We appreciate all those who attended the event, at which we presented the vehicle—decorated with a huge green bow—to the Burse family. Our thanks also go out to The Impact!Group of Lawrenceville, Ga, and Howard Batchelor of Finish Master that attended the presentation.. We look forward to participating again next year and we invite other auto body repair facilities in our community to join us so our industry can serve even more local families next year.”
“The event was a great success,” says Avis Lucas of The Impact! Group. “We’re proud to be a part of Recycled Rides. The family is just thrilled to have reliable transportation. Sports & Imports Collision did a great job getting the vehicle ready.”
The National Auto Body Council is a not-for-profit organization committed to the goal of improving the image of all dedicated professionals in the collision repair industry. NABC headquarters is located at 9404 Ashking Drive, Mechanicsville, VA 23116.
