1-800-Radiator & A/C Helps Recycled Rides Program Provide Vehicles to Disadvantaged Families

The NABC (National Auto Body Council) held a Recycled Rides luncheon at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Nov. 3, where 14 families were presented with keys to their refurbished cars.

The NABC (National Auto Body Council) held a Recycled Rides luncheon at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Nov. 3, where 14 families were presented with keys to their refurbished cars. 1-800-Radiator & A/C was among the many companies donating materials to help repair damaged donated cars to like-new condition for the families in need.  

1-800-Radiator & A/C is a member of the NABC and has participated in the Recycled Rides program for the past two years.

In a moving presentation, each family was brought up to the stage as their heart-wrenching story was told to the audience. They were then given the keys to their new cars, which for many meant not having to take the bus through precarious areas at night, or now being able to secure a job that was too far away from public transportation.

The families were given the opportunity to address all the people in the room that made this a reality for them, but most were too emotional and simply choked out the words, "thank you."

"It was wonderful to see the difference receiving a car meant to the quality of life for these families," said Brian Newberry, VP of sales and marketing at 1-800-Radiator & A/C. "We look forward to continuing to support the Recycled Rides program in the future."
