Participants in this year’s multi-car gifting at SEMA include Enterprise Rent-A-Car, State Farm, Allstate, Esurance and Hertz, who donated vehicles refurbished by Gerber Collision, Caliber Collision, Sterling Auto Body Centers and Collision Authority.

The families were selected by Family Promise of Las Vegas, which helps homeless and low-income families transition from homelessness to stability and independence.

In addition, Family Promise received a 15-passenger van donated by Enterprise and repaired by Gerber in a surprise presentation.

"Family Promise of Las Vegas does a wonderful job of helping so many families regain stability," said Chuck Sulkala, NABC executive director. "We recognize that owning a car they can count on could be the key to regaining both their financial well-being and their self-respect. Recycled Rides is a wonderful program that enables so many of us in the collision repair industry to partner with our colleagues and make a positive impact in peoples’ lives.”
