NABC Recycled Rides Program Donates Vehicle to LA Veteran


On Aug. 29, a deserving Los Angeles veteran experienced a life-changing event---the presentation of a vehicle to provide her independence and the ability to get to work---thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program along with car donor Allstate and repair partner Waters Auto Body.

The deserving recipient was selected by Hollywood Post 43, The American Legion, which also hosted the presentation.

Mahogany Zachery received a 2020 Honda Accord. Zachery has been a member of Hollywood Post 43 for six years and has served on several committees and in various volunteer capacities. She recently appealed to the Post due to her extreme need to replace her vehicle. Zachery needs a replacement vehicle to help her get to work, make her routine VA hospital appointments and volunteer at the American Legion Post 43. She is currently an actor who also writes, and she is directly affected by the SAG-AFTRA and WGA writers’ strike, which has had direct consequences on her income and ability to continue working within her field. She is seeking other work but has to decline offers due to the need for reliable transportation. A replacement vehicle would make, in the candidate's own words, "an enormous difference in my work life."

“Today is probably one of the best days of my life. I have had so many issues with transportation and trying to get around. I am so thankful for this car and it means so much to me,” said Zachery.

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 3,200 vehicles valued at some $46 million.

Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides presentation include Advanced Remarketing Services and Cars for Charity.
