The Body Shop Collision Repair, a member of the National Auto Body Council (NABC), has committed to participate in a national vehicle donation program called Recycled Rides. This program is a community awareness project whereby members of NABC repair and donate recycled vehicles to families in need.
Recycled Rides is scheduled to make simultaneous donations throughout the country the week of Thanksgiving. “Our goal is to help people in our local community,” states owner John Rattan. “We decided to utilize the NABC program because they have a great toolkit which walks us through the entire process. Together we can have an effect right here in our community and across the country.”
Mr. Rattan continues: “Each year collision repair operators all over the country come across cars that are ‘written off’ or ‘totaled’ by either the owner or the insurance company. Many times all these vehicles need is some TLC or mechanical and body work to get them road ready and safe to drive. Why are these cars going to waste when there are people who really need them? We decided to join in on this national effort and located a nice Chevrolet Malibu generously donated by Progressive Insurance.
3eMcKinney will be helping The Body Shop locate a worthy individual. “We are excited about participating in Recycled Rides,” states Larry Robinson, director of 3eMcKinney. “The Body Shop has a long history of giving back to the community and we’re proud to be a part of this program. We’ll work diligently to find the perfect match for this donation.”
The Body Shop Collision Repair was founded in 1976 by McKinney native, John Rattan, and currently has locations in McKinney and Garland.
