Recently, a Griffin County, GA, charity received a vehicle it will deliver to a deserving recipient, thanks to Classic Collision and car donor GEICO, along with the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides program.

The presentation was held at the Classic Collision in Union City, GA. The Honorable Vince Williams, mayor of Union City, and Battalion Chief Dennis Moore from the local firefighters joined the ceremonies.

Kaitlyn’s Promise is a nonprofit ministry that provides transitional services to women that have dealt with an addiction-related crisis. This is not a facility, but rather an assistance program helping women successfully re-establish and transition back into society after having successfully graduated from a faith-based recovery program. Their focus is to help ladies with a "hand up" as they begin their journey in transition. 

The charity received a 2017 Volkswagen Passat, donated by GEICO and refurbished by Classic Collision in Union City, GA.


The recipient is Jessie White, a young woman who has turned her life around through help from Kaitlyn’s Promise. In addition, Classic Collision’s vendor partners donated some $1,600 in gift cards for the presentation.


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 include 1-800 Charity Cars, Ultimate Auto Glass, AutoNation Ford of Union City, PPG, Single Source, Enterprise Rent a Car, Nalley Wholesale Auto Parts, Kroger of Union City, Chick-Fil-A of Fairburn and LKQ.
