MAACO® teamed up with the National Auto Body Council's Recycled Rides™ program to make a difference in the life of an American hero. In partnership with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, LKQ and Axalta, the MAACO® Fleet Solutions team donated a restored vehicle to expecting mother and Marine veteran, Sherika Fayson.
"The thought of having a reliable car brings tears to my eyes," said Fayson. "It's overwhelming to think what a difference it will make in my life."
"This would not have been possible without the help of Robert Fish, MAACO® Fleet Solutions National Account Manager, and our incredible partners," said Frank Petrane, MAACO® Vice President of Fleet Sales. "Enterprise Rent-A-Car donated the 2014 Nissan Versa and Axalta automotive finishes and LKQ provided resources necessary to complete the project."
The Orlando MAACO®, located at 917 Mercy Drive, is owned and operated by local Frank Furino. Furino and his team dedicated more than 30 hours of body work, collision repair and paint service.
"It's important to give back to the community that supports you," said Furino. "When asked if I was interested in participating in this program, I didn't hesitate. As America's bodyshop it was an honor to give back to an American hero, like Sherika."
Over 1,000 vehicles have been donated through the National Auto Body Council's Recycled Rides™ program since it began in 2007. For more information on the Recycled Rides™ program, visit http://www.nationalautobodycouncil.org/programs/recycled-rides.
