On Nov. 3, a deserving Wilson, NC veteran was presented with a vehicle to help provide him independence and the ability to work and take care of his family thanks to the National Auto Body Council (NABC) Recycled Rides® program, car donor GEICO® and CARSTAR Don’s Auto Body of Rocky Mount, located outside of Raleigh, NC.

The presentation was held at CARSTAR Don’s Auto Body. GEICO donated the 2017 Jeep Cherokee, and the team at CARSTAR Don’s Auto Body provided the repairs. The deserving recipient was selected by Christian Fellowship Home of Nash and Edgecombe Counties.


The recipient, Godfrey A. Alleyne, served in the U.S. Army and was deployed to Vietnam. He now spends his time giving back to others in the community, and the gift of reliable transportation will help him continue working and helping others.
“This is like a new day for me,” said Alleyne. “I’ve never had a car this new---most of them were 20 years old. I can’t wait to put the plates on it and go visit my family.”
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 2,750 vehicles valued at more than $38 million.
Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides presentation included 1-800 Charity Cars and Enterprise.


CARSTAR Don’s Auto Body, Enterprise and GEICO all provided gifts to “stuff the trunk” with household items and car care supplies.
