Miami Area Veteran Receives NABC Recycled Ride

On Dec. 6, a deserving Miami area veteran was presented with a vehicle to provide her transportation and the ability to take of her family, thanks to the National Auto Body Council (NABC) Recycled Rides program, along with car donor GEICO and repair partner Classic Collision.

The presentation was held at Classic Collision in Culter Bay, FL. The deserving veteran, Karla Diaz, who received a 2017 Kia Optima, was nominated by the Wounded Warrior Project.

Diaz is a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served as a combat medic from 2006 to 2012. She is a widow raising three boys. One of her children is disabled and often has medical appointments. Diaz constantly depends on asking family and friends for rides. The gift of reliable transportation will enable her to care for her family’s needs.

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 program in 2007, members of the NABC have donated more than 3,200 vehicles valued at some $46 million.

Additional partners in the presentation included Enterprise, Cars for Charity and Advanced Remarketing Services.
