Manchester Collision Center believes that being involved in the community is an important part to any business. Read below to see how we give back to the community, including our participation in the National Auto Body Council's Recycled Rides program. The National Auto Body Council is a not-for-profit organization committed to the goal of improving the image of all dedicated professionals in the collision repair industry.
Recycled Rides - Providing Wheels to those in Need
The idea of this program is to recycle and deliver hundreds of cars annually to families
in need. These families are identified through a collaboration with local charitable agencies.
How does this program get vehicles to members of the community? Members of the
National Auto Body Council (NABC), such as Manchester Collision Center, repair and donate recycled vehicles to
families in need in their communities. It is a community relations
program intended to build good will at the local level, while improving
and promoting the image of the collision industry on a national level. Who takes part in this operation?
Insurance companies; paint and parts vendors donate their resources to
assist collision repair facilities in making this project possible.
Recycled Rides in Manchester NH
Around the country donations of the recycled rides take place throughout the
country the Monday immediately preceding Thanksgiving. One of those donations took place in Manchester, NH at the Manchester Collision Center.
This year, Manchester Collision Center received a van and then performed all of the necessary repairs. The newly tuned-up vehicle was donated to a family on the day before Thanksgiving. Manchester Collision center has participated in this project the least two years and joins Easter Seals to pick the family that will receive it. We would also like to thank others in the community who helped out. This year one of our insurance Partners Geico Insurance donated the car. And vendors that donated parts and or supplies included Sanel Auto Parts, Allen Mello Dodge, Keystone Automotive.
