Recently, Alexis Short and Missy Erick, two deserving Northern California residents, experienced life-changing events---the presentation of refurbished vehicles to provide them  independence and the ability to work and take care of their families---thanks to G & C Auto Body of Santa Rosa and G & C Auto Body Sebastopol and car donors Allstate and State Farm, along with the National Auto BodyCouncil Recycled Rides program.

The presentations were held recently at G &C Auto Body locations in Santa Rosa, CA.


The deserving recipients were selected by the Crozat Family Foundation. Short was presented a 2015 Honda Accord LX donated by Allstate, and Erick was gifted a 2012 Ford Taurus donated by State Farm.
Short, who has four children, is finding her independence after dealing with domestic violence from her former partner. She works as a caregiver for two families in the private sector, and has to commute long distances for her job. Her previous vehicle blew an engine, so she now takes the bus, train and taxi for work, appointments and family errands.


The gift of reliable transportation allows her to maintain a sense of independence for herself and her children. It also will help her look for a new job closer to home.
“Thank you so much Allstate Insurance for donating this lovely 2015 Honda Accord,” said Short. “Thank you to G&C Auto Body Santa Rosa for making it look new again! A special thank you to G&C Auto Body for sponsoring six months of full coverage insurance, and six months of grocery and gas help to assist me in adjusting to the cost of owning a vehicle.”
Erick is a single mom to three, with two living at home. Her vehicle was repossessed in mid-February, and she is currently getting rides to her job as a housepainter with her boss or co-worker. She is also looking for new housing. Having reliable transportation would allow her the independence to get to work and take care of her family, and also assist in her search for safe housing.
