Springfield, MO Single Mother Receives Donated Vehicle Courtesy of Crash Champions, NABC


The Crash Champions Collision Repair Team joined hands with the National Auto Body Council®, GEICO and local nonprofit organizations to restore and donate a Hyundai Elantra to a local single mother in need.

The March 16 ceremonial giveaway was part of the NABC Recycled Rides® program and followed certified collision repair technicians from Crash Champions volunteering their time and expertise to restore the vehicle to like-new condition.

The recipient, who asked to remain anonymous, was nominated by Women in Need of the Ozarks, which provides support for local single women facing short-term crises.

“We’re grateful for the incredible generosity of the entire Crash Champions team to pull off this special giveaway,” said Women in Need of the Ozarks President Paige Payne. “The hard work of their technicians and team members will make an indelible impact on the life of our recipient and her family. This vehicle is a true catalyst that will provide the freedom of a personal reliable vehicle for her and her family.”
