Refurbished Vehicle Donated to Spotsylvania, VA, Family NABC

On Tuesday, Sept. 17, a deserving Spotsylvania, VA, family experienced a life-changing event – the presentation of a vehicle to provide them independence and the ability to work and take care of their family – thanks to the National Auto Body Council (NABC) Recycled Rides program along with car donor State Farm and repair partner Caliber Collision – Culpeper, VA.

“It’s an honor to be able to partner with these industry leaders to refurbish a vehicle and present it to such a deserving family,” said Bill Garoutte, president and CEO of the NABC.


NABC, CIECA, State Farm and Caliber Collision - Culpeper presented a refurbished 2012 Toyota Camry to Doris and Roy Robinson of Spotsylvania, VA, who were nominated by the nonprofit Tuesday’s Children.


They are Gold Star parents whose son, Stacey Robinson, served 17 years in the Navy. He served most of his military career at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, DC.


The Robinsons currently have an unreliable vehicle and have to rely on their children, who work full time, for transportation to medical visits and everyday tasks.


“This vehicle is a blessing from God and it came at just the right time,” said Doris Robinson, of her cherry-red Camry. “We are so thankful to the Gold Star organization which led us to Tuesday’s Children and now this miracle today.”
