Valley Motor Center to Donate Two Vehicles to the Disabled American Veterans

Valley Motor Center proudly announces the continuation of its annual participation in “Recycled Rides 2012,” to be held December 10, 2012.  For years, Valley Motor Centers has been a part of a nationwide project of the National Auto Body Council (NABC) to donate vehicles to needy charities in local communities.  Valley Motor Center, supported by selected auto insurers, paint and parts vendors, and other collision repair industry partners, are all donating resources to make this possible.  

Valley Motor Center is again honored to be the official San Fernando Valley donor. For the first time, Valley Motor Center will be donating two vehicles. The Disabled American Veterans (DAV), California Chapter is this year’s recipient.  The donated vehicles will stay in the community at the DAV Transportation Division, and the DAV Hospital in North Hills.  They will transport disabled or elderly veterans and family members to and from VA Medical facilities for treatment, as well as to physical therapy, rehabilitation, continuing education after military service, and to and from community events.

“We commend the DAV for their invaluable support and services they provide to help our disabled veterans, who have fought so hard for the freedom we enjoy every day as Americans” said Marsh Gluchow, owner of Valley Motor Center.  “Recycled Rides is a wonderful program that enables so many of us in the collision repair industry to partner with our insurance colleagues and vendors to  make a positive impact in so many peoples’ lives.” 

“We are grateful to Valley Motor Center, Farmers Insurance and Mercury Insurance that help provide our veterans, year after year, with help to ease their transportation burdens,” said Dan Contreras, California Adjutant for the Disabled American Veterans.
