Crash Champions, NABC Restore and Donate Vehicle to Charlotte U.S. Army Veteran 


In a celebratory giveaway event March 26, the Crash Champions Collision Repair Team partnered with the National Auto Body Council®, GEICO and local partners to donate a vehicle to a local U.S. Army veteran.

The giveaway to veteran Cyril Smith took place at the Charlotte Marriott City Center following his nomination by the Mecklenburg County Veteran Service Office.

“It’s always a particularly special moment for our team to step up and lend a small token of our great appreciation for those who have sacrificed so much for our country,” said Crash Champions founder and CEO Matt Ebert. “Our long-standing participation in the NABC Recycled Rides program remains an incredible opportunity for our team to work together for a great cause. We’re grateful for the privilege of playing a small part in Sunday’s giveaway.”

Smith is an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Army and father of three. The vehicle, fully restored through volunteer efforts of the Crash Champions team of certified technicians, will provide Smith with a reliable form of transportation for his family.

“I can’t begin to tell you the difference having a safe and reliable vehicle will have on our lives,” said Smith. “For this, we are forever grateful to the NABC, Crash Champions, GEICO and all the other sponsors that made today possible.”
