News: NABC Gifts Recycled Ride to Deserving Texas Mother
Maaco Auto Body franchisee Joe Houghton repairs U. S. Army veteran Jorge Santiago’s vandalized car after hearing about it on the news.
On a quiet street in West Springfield, Mass., U. S. Army veteran Jorge Santiago had his car vandalized. Santiago’s wife posted about the incident on Facebook, not to draw attention but so people in the community would be aware of it.
Maaco Auto Body franchisee Joe Houghton learned of the incident when a local news organization WGGB reported on the story and decided to do something about it. He offered to take care of the repairs of the car and provide the Santiago family a rental car during the repair process.
“Giving back to the communities where we do business is very near and dear to our hearts,” said Manny Guzman of Maaco. “Veterans have given a lot to our country, and it’s an honor to be able to give something back to them.”
