On Nov. 1, a fully restored vehicle was donated to the Divine Flight Foundation, a community organization that promotes access to holistic educational opportunities for families across Florida.
The ceremonial giveaway was part of the National Auto Body Council’s (NABC) Recycled Rides program, and took place at Crash Champions in Davie, FL, which repaired the vehicle. Representatives of car donor GEICO were also on hand to personally hand over the keys to Lt. Col. Ryan Reed, a member of the U.S. Air Force Reserve and director of the Divine Flight Foundation.
“I could not be more excited to receive this generous gift,” said Reed. “Having a safe and reliable vehicle is truly a blessing, and I cannot begin to tell you the difference it will make to our organization as we support the families in our program. I am forever grateful to the NABC, Crash Champions and all the sponsors involved in this wonderful program.”
The donation was made possible, in part, by certified collision repair technicians from Crash Champions who volunteered their time and expert craftmanship to fully restore a 2021 Hyundai Tucson.
Crash Champions is a Level One member of the NABC and regular participant in NABC Recycled Rides giveaways across the country. In 2022 alone, the organization restored 50 vehicles for families and individuals in need.
