NABC Recycled Rides Presents Refurbished Vehicle to New York Veteran 


On July 19, a deserving Smithtown, NY, 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 GEICO and repair partner Bi-County Auto Body.

The presentation was held at Bi-County Auto Body.

The recipient was Denise Crutchfield, who received a 2021 Honda CRV. She is a U.S. Army veteran, who served from 1980-1990 and was stationed in Germany from 1981-1983. Crutchfield earned an honorable discharge in 1990 and completed her service with the rank of captain. During her service, Crutchfield earned an Army Service Ribbon and an Overseas Service Ribbon. She actively participates in Veteran Affairs, VA appointments, community services, food drives, pantry delivery and community fundraising.

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 NABC have donated more than 3,000 vehicles valued at some $42 million.
