The gift of a vehicle will allow him to get a job and continue his path to independence.

Since the inception of the NABC Recycled Rides program in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council have donated nearly 3,000 vehicles valued at some $42 million.

Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides presentation include 1-800 Charity Cars, LKQ, Barnett Kia, Discount Tire, AutoZone, Dick’s Valley Service, and Towing, Precision Tune, and Smart Express.
