October 17, 2022 – A Texas veteran and mother of three recently received a vehicle from the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program.
According to a press release, the presentation of a 2014 Nissan Altima took place at GEICO’s regional headquarters in Richardson, Texas. GEICO donated the vehicle and Texas Collision Centers refurbished it.
The recipient was Kim Jones-Snipes, a US Marine Corps veteran who was selected to receive the vehicle by the Salvation Army. Jones-Snipes moved with her three children to Dallas to escape an abusive situation. She worked as a delivery girl for Instacart, Spark and Doordash. She had an offer to drive delivery for Amazon, but her car broke down. The Recycled Rides vehicle will ensure that she and her family have reliable transportation.
Members of the Women’s Industry Network presented with the National Auto Body Council. Other partners included 1-800 Charity Cars, Hertz and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
“We at WIN are very grateful and honored to be able to participate in such an outstanding program, such as NABC Recycled Rides,” said WIN and NABC Board Member Kristle Bollans via the press release. “The gift of reliable transportation is something we can never take for granted. What an honor to stand alongside our friends at the National Auto Body Council and show our support for the communities where we live and work.
