“We are proud to be part of today’s celebration and to help Abigail and her family with the gift of reliable transportation,” said Doria, who won the Fix Auto USA Rookie of the Year award. “We are always working to give back to our community, provide for our veterans and help support the Armed Services YMCA. Today’s gifts combine all of these passions, and we’re honored to help celebrate USAA’s 100th anniversary in such a memorable way.

For 100 years, the USAA mission has served active duty military personnel, veterans and their families. Recipients were nominated by non-profit organizations to receive a recycled ride. With the partnership of NABC, a non-profit organization committed to serving their communities, and many players in the collision repair industry, vehicles are repaired and donated to those identified as needing reliable transportation.

Other partners in the presentation included 1.800.Charity.Cars, Enterprise, Axalta, Longhouse Inventory Solutions and SafeLite, among others.

Recycled Rides is a program in which companies 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 program’s launch in 2007, NABC members have donated more than 3,000 vehicles valued at approximately $42 million.
