Recently, a deserving Huntington, NY, recipient experienced a life-changing event---the presentation of vehicles to provide them independence and the ability to work and take care of their family---thanks to DePalo and Sons Auto Body and car donor GEICO, along with the National Auto Body Council (NABC) Recycled Rides program.

The presentation was held at the DePalo and Sons Auto Body in Huntington, NY. 

The deserving recipient, Kenroy French, was selected by the Office of Veteran Affairs. He received a 2016 VW Passat donated by GEICO and repaired by the team at DePalo and Sons.


French is currently enlisted in the Army National Guard. He originally enlisted in 2019 and has served proudly ever since.


He was recently stationed in Plattsburg, NY, and is currently located in Long Island while being assigned to the COVID Mission, where he is tasked with helping the vaccination rollout efficiency and organization. French is married and is a proud father of his young daughter.
“I’m very honored and fortunate to have been selected for this gifting and is very grateful for all of the parties involved,” said French. 
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 NABC Recycled Rides program in 2007, members of the NABC have donated more than 2,600 vehicles valued at more than $36 million.
Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides presentation included 1-800 Charity Cars.
