Haskins Automotive and GEICO to Donate Vehicle to Marlborough, MA, Recipient

On July 25, 2019, deserving Wellesley, MA, residents will experience a life-changing event—the presentation of vehicles to provide them independence and the ability to work and take care of their families—thanks to Haskins Automotive and car donor Geico Insurance (GEICO), along with the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides program.

The presentation will be held at the Haskins Automotive at 467 Washington St., Wellesley, MA, 02482.

 

WHO: NABC Recycled Rides program, along with partners:

 

  • Haskins Automotive
  • GEICO
  • Family Promise Metrowest

 

WHAT: Haskins Automotive and GEICO will present a 2012 Toyota Highlander XLE vehicle to Magaly Fernandez of Marlborough, MA. Gabriel Cecilio and Fernandez are parents of three wonderful teenagers, ages 19, 17 and 14. Gabriel works a full-time job and Magaly is enrolled in a program that helps families identify a pathway to a career that pays a family a sustaining wage. The older child just finished a year program as an electrician and is working full-time. Their 17-year son is a high school student, with a part-time job. The youngest of the family is a middle school student and a cheerleader. She looks forward to getting into a vocational school to become a hairdresser and makeup artist. This is a family with a very hectic schedule who shares one car, which unfortunately can break down anytime, because of all the mileage accumulation.

 

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 Recycled Rides program in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council have donated more than 2,100 vehicles valued at more than $36 million.

 

Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides presentation include 1-800 Charity Cars and International Car Parts.
