Thirteen Las Vegas Families and Family Promise Charity Receiving Recycled Rides at SEMA

The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced that the lives of 13 deserving Las Vegas families will be changed by the gift of reliable transportation on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 2:30 p.m. outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center in conjunction with the SEMA Show.

The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced that the lives of 13 deserving Las Vegas families will be changed by the gift of reliable transportation on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 2:30 p.m. outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center in conjunction with the SEMA Show. Family Promise, the charity that assisted these families, will also receive a vehicle at this event to further help it assist hundreds of families in crisis in the Las Vegas area.

Each of the families will be receiving the gift of a refurbished vehicle from NABC members through the organization’s Recycled Rides program, a national initiative through which NABC members — men and women putting their craftsmanship to benevolent use — refurbish donated vehicles and gift them to families in need and organizations dedicated to assisting others.

Through their support, the following NABC Diamond Members donated vehicles: State Farm, Allstate and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Additional vehicles were donated by GEICO, American Family, AAA of Northern California, Nevada and Utah Insurance Exchange.

NABC members Sterling Collision Centers, 911 Collision, Caliber Collision Centers, Gerber Collision & Glass, Collision Authority, Collision Masters CARSTAR East and two area vo-tech schools, Southeast Career Technical Academy and the College of Southern Nevada, repaired the vehicles.

Each recipient family is a graduate of Family Promise of Las Vegas, a non-profit interfaith network that provides support to families in crisis. The NABC has made it a point to give away Recycled Rides vehicles at Las Vegas industry events each year of the program’s existence.

"We’re happy to be back in Las Vegas to give these families the reliable transportation that can help provide them a fresh start," said Recycled Rides Co-Chairman Michael Quinn, vice president of industry and community relations for 911 Collision Centers, a Caliber Company. “We’re also very pleased to be able to say that the Las Vegas gifting represents only a small fraction of the 150 families that will be receiving vehicles this year through Recycled Rides. I am grateful to be part of a project that clearly illustrates the giving nature of NABC members and the collision repair industry at large.”
