NABC Recycled Rides® Program Presents Two Vehicles to Deserving Recipients in Dallas


Recently, two deserving Dallas veterans experienced 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 the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program, along with car donors State Farm and Allstate and collision repair partners Gerber and Service King.

The presentations were originally scheduled as part of the NABC™ Pars for Cars Golf Fundraiser in Dallas, but were postponed in light of the pandemic.
“As we return to our new normal way of life, we are excited to restart our scheduled presentations to deserving recipients around the country, albeit in a safe, socially distanced manner following all local requirements,” said Bill Garoutte, president and CEO of the National Auto Body Council®.


“We offer a ‘thank you’ to these veterans for their service, and congratulations on their new vehicles. We also offer our sincere appreciation to our insurance and collision repair partners on this project, as well as those around the country who have a number of NABC Recycled Rides® projects in queue. We are all ready to get back to our mission of changing and saving lives every day.”


Perzell Hudson Jr. received a 2013 Ford Fusion donated by Allstate and repaired by Service King at SK10 in North Richland Hills, TX. Axalta and Safelite also contributed to the repair.


Hudson joined the U.S. Air Force in 1987, where he concentrated on the fields of HVAC and graphics. While in uniform, he was deployed to UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Iraq. He retired after 21 years of honorable military service, and now he spends his time giving back to the homeless veterans in his community.


This vehicle will allow him the freedom to provide support to his military family, visit his own beloved family in Mississippi and give him the reliable transportation he desired for future employment. Hudson was selected by Allies in Service.
