Six Las Vegas Families to Receive Recycled Rides at NACE

The National Auto Body Association (NABC) announced that six Las Vegas families will receive refurbished vehicles at NACE on Friday as part of its Recycled Rides program.

The donated vehicles were refurbished by 911 Collision Centers, Collision Authority and Sterling Autobody. Vehicles were provided by Allstate, Esurance, Progressive and State Farm. Donating materials to the project were: 1-800 Radiator, 3M, CarQuest, DuPont, Greenleaf, LKQ and Sherwin-Williams.

“The hard work and long hours the segments of the collision industry put into this initiative underscore the positive difference we can make for our neighbors in need,” said Nick Notte, president of Sterling Autobody and 2010 Recycled Rides chair. “The complex and sometimes conflicting issues, agendas and personalities that make up our industry are set aside on Ride-Away Day, when all that matters are the smiling faces of the vehicle recipients. It’s a snapshot of all that’s good about being part of Recycled Rides and why everyone at Sterling Autobody Centers is proud to be involved.”

The six recipient families are graduates of the Family Promise of Las Vegas program, a non-profit interfaith network that provides support to families in crisis. Recipients include a single, windowed Air Force veteran raising three sons; a single mother raising three young sons; a Navy veteran, his wife and four children – one with a chronic medical condition requiring regular trips to the doctor; a single father expecting a child in December that must take an hour-long bus trip each day that would take five minutes by car; and a couple with two children who will be able to visit family in Arizona.

“In each of these cases, the recipient heads of household are trying to do the right thing for their families but are hindered because they don’t have a functioning vehicle to get everyone to work and school on time,” said Michael Quinn, owner of 911 Collision Centers and Recycled Rides chairperson. “Thanks to Recycled Rides, these families will get the opportunity to make better lives for themselves.”

In addition to the giveaway at NACE, Recycled Rides is slated to give away 100 vehicles simultaneously across the U.S. on Nov. 23.
