NABC Recycled Ride® Program, Farmers Insurance®, DFW Collision Center of Arlington Donate Refurbished Vehicle to Veteran

On Aug. 25, a deserving Dallas veteran experienced a life-changing event---the presentation of a vehicle to provide her independence and the ability to work and take care of her family---thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program, along with car donor Farmers Insurance® and vehicle repair partner DFW Collision of Arlington, a Berkshire Hathaway Automotive company.

The presentation was held at DFW Collision Center in Arlington, TX, following all state and local safe-distancing and health policies.
NABC™, Farmers Insurance® and DFW Collision Center presented a refurbished 2016 Toyota Camry to Zita Foto, a U.S. Navy veteran and single mother. Foto joined the Navy as a firefighter to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Today, she faces challenges getting to work and taking care of her family due to the poor, unreliable condition of her vehicle. The gift of transportation will allow her to work and take care of her twin 3-year-old boys.
“Today we were able to show our gratitude to a deserving veteran and thank her for her service by presenting her with a refurbished vehicle,” said Darren Huggins, national collision director for Berkshire Hathaway Automotive. “We thank Farmers Insurance®, our team at DFW Collision Center and our other partners for making this possible.”


Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides® presentation include 1-800 Charity Cars, English Color, 3M, PPG, M2 Towing, Vandergriff Acura, Vandergriff Toyota and Vandergriff Honda.
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 National Auto Body Council have donated more than 2,500 vehicles valued at more than $36 million.
