The National Auto Body Council (NABC), along with Allstate and Texas Collision Centers, recently donated a refurbished vehicle to a deserving Frisco, Texas veteran via the NABC Recycled Rides program.
The presentation was held as part of the Dallas Growth Conference at Dallas Frisco Hotel and Convention Center. The deserving recipient, LaFonda Roberson, was selected by Soldiers’ Angels.
Roberson, a U.S. Army veteran who lost her husband to leukemia in 2011 and whose son was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2005 and leukemia in 2019, received a 2016 Hyundai Accent. In 2017, Roberson was admitted into the hospital for a condition which resulted in her having to have yearly blood transfusions and being unable to work. A vehicle means she will no longer have to walk or try to borrow a vehicle to get to appointments, and she now will be readily available if her son has an emergency issue that requires immediate help. Due to knee problems, Roberson is unable to walk long distances, and the gift of reliable transportation will truly be a blessing for her.
“I am overwhelmed with joy,” said Roberson. “I can’t tell everyone thank you enough on behalf of myself and my children.”
Added Texas Collision Centers Chief Strategy Officer Shyllo Michaelis, “Texas Collision Centers is so very grateful to have been chosen as the repair partner to refurbish this vehicle for the benefit of such a worthy veteran recipient in Ms. Roberson. Giving back to the communities we serve is engrained in our culture and an important part of our identity as an organization.”
Additional partners in the presentation included Enterprise, Cars for Charity, Advanced Remarketing Services, INA Towing and Complete Collision Solutions.
