De’Audric Harris received a 2012 Chrysler 200.

The National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides program on Dec. 12 presented a refurbished vehicle to a Pittsburgh area veteran to provide him independence and the ability to work, along with car donor GEICO and collision repair partner Body by Cochran, a division of #1 Cochran Automotive Collision Castle Shannon.

The presentation was held at #1 Cochran Honda Johnstown and the deserving veteran, De’Audric Harris, who was nominated by Veterans Leadership Program, received a 2012 Chrysler 200.

Harris, who served in the U.S. Army from 2013 to 2017, is currently a traveling nurse LPN and needs transportation to get to work. Recently divorced, he got help from the Veterans Leadership Program to secure new housing. In his current role, he enjoys giving back to the community by taking care of the elderly population, many who also served in the military. The gift of a reliable vehicle will help him continue to help others in the Johnstown community.

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 1-800 Charity Cars, Enterprise, Tri-River Towing and Toona Automotive Paint and Supplies.
