Service King Donates Car to Texas Family Impacted by Wildfire

Today at noon, Service King
Collision Repair Centers will donate a vehicle to a Bastrop County, Texas family who were one of more than 500
families who lost their homes in a devastating wildfire that hit the area recently. 

Travis and
Meghan Shepherd and their two-and-half-month old son, Braxton, lost their home, all of their
belongings and their car in the fire. The house was a rental, so they won’t receive any replacement, and the car
only had liability insurance, so it too will not be replaced.

The vehicle the Shepherds will receive is a 2009 Camry. They’ll also receive gas cards, a baby seat, baby necessities and the cash to pay the
$600 sales tax to transfer the title of the car to them. The delivery will take place at B & B
Body and Paint in Austin, Texas.

Service King heard about the
Shepherds’ misfortune from friends of Service King President Cathy
Bonner, who has lived and worked in Austin for over 40 years. Bonner will be there to hand over the keys to the family at the event today, which is open to the public.A wildfire in Bastrop County, Texas, destroyed cars, houses and many families' lives.
