News: AAA Says Record Number of Americans Will Hit the Road Over July 4 Holiday
Service King and its teammates have handed over the keys to more than 40 refurbished vehicles this year as part of its Great American Recycled Rides Giveaway.
The gift of a new vehicle helped change the lives of needy families in 15 cities across the country recently as part of a massive giveaway effort conducted by Service King Collision Repair Centers and its teammates. The simultaneous event symbolized the company’s 40th anniversary while breaking the record for the largest donation in National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides’ history by an auto repair company.
Service King and its teammates have handed over the keys to more than 40 refurbished vehicles this year as part of its Great American Recycled Rides Giveaway, each repaired voluntarily by the company’s technicians and delivered to a family selected by local non-profit organizations. The weekend of Sept. 17th, the Great American Recycled Rides Giveaway provided vehicles to single mothers, transitioning homeless families and military veterans in cities across the country.
“Positively impacting our communities remains a cornerstone to Service King’s greater purpose as a family of teammates,” said Service King President and 28-year teammate Jeff McFadden. “We uniquely recognize the impact a vehicle, and dependable transportation, has on the lives of families who need it most. It’s our sincere hope the volunteer efforts of our teammates and these vehicles touched lives in a positive way.”
On Sept. 18th, the effort took center stage at Chicagoland Speedway in front of more than 50,000 fans as Service King presented keys to a pair of recipients from the Women With Drive Foundation – which helps at-risk women achieve self-sufficiency.
Service King is a longtime partner of the Recycled Rides initiative, which has successfully donated more than 1,000 refurbished vehicles to families in need across the U.S. since its inception in 2007.
