Don’s Auto Body, State Farm® Present Refurbished Vehicle to Gold Star Family

On Sept. 11, a deserving St. Charles, MO, recipient experienced a life-changing event---the presentation of a vehicle to provide her independence and the ability to work and take care of her family---thanks to Don’s Auto Body and car donor State Farm® along with the NationalAuto Body Council Recycled Rides® program.

The presentation of the refurbished 2016 Mazda 6 was held at the Don’s Auto Body in St. Charles. The deserving recipient, Gold Star wife Julia Frampton, was selected by H.E.R.O.E.S. Care. Frampton lost her husband, U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Gregory M. Frampton, in 2003. He was one of four crew members who perished when their MH-60 Blackhawk helicopter crashed near Bagram, Afghanistan, supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

Since her husband passed, Frampton has struggled financially to care for her granddaughter and their needs. Her vehicle is old and unreliable, and the gift of transportation will allow her to manage medical appointments, errands and family activities.

NABC Recycled Rides® is a unique program in which businesses representing all facets of the collision repair industry team up to repair and donate vehicles to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation.


Since the inception of the program in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council® have donated more than 2,500 vehicles valued at more than $36 million.
Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides® presentation included 1-800 Charity Cars.
