Moppert Brothers Collision Services Group Inc. announced it is once again participating in the nationwide vehicle donation program Recycled Rides, a community awareness project whereby members of the National Auto Body Council (NABC) repair and donate recycled vehicles to families and service organizations in need across the country.
Moppert Brothers is scheduled to make a donation of a 2012 Toyota Highlander on September 10th at its corporate headquarters.
“Our goal is to give back to our community,” said Harry J. Moppert Sr., president of Moppert Brothers. “By partnering with a national organization such as NABC, we can have an impact right here in our community and across the country. I want to thank our employees for their expertise in repairing the vehicle as well as our vendors for their generous parts contributions, and GEICO Insurance who donated the vehicle. Without them, reaching this exciting moment would not be possible.”
The vehicle is being donated to The Michael J. Strange Foundation, a nonprofit organization set up in the memory of Michael J. Strange, who was killed in action on Aug. 6, 2011 in Afghanistan. Strange was a Navy cryptologist who served with an elite SEAL Team. The foundation provides grief support services to Gold Star families, which are defined as families who have lost loved ones in service to our country in time of war.
“Moppert Brothers Auto Collision Specialists Inc. is celebrating our 40th year in the collision repair industry and it feels great to be able to continue on our tradition of giving back to the communities in which we serve,” said Harry Moppert Jr., manager of Moppert Brothers and third generation member of the family. “We look forward to participating again next year and encourage other auto collision repair businesses to participate in this worthwhile cause.”
