Topeka, Kan.—A Topeka resident was recently presented a vehicle to provide them independence and the ability to work and take care of their families from the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides program along with car donor State Farm Insurance and Washburn Tech.
The presentation was held at Washburn Tech in Topeka, Kan. The event marks the 28th refurbished vehicle the Washburn Tech students and faculty have done over the past decade.
“I’m really thankful for everybody for taking their time out and working on my car. Yeah, it’s my car now,” said Taliah Noble, the recipient of the refurbished Ford Escape. “And just spending their time, because not anybody has to do that.”
NABC Recycled Rides is a program in which businesses 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 inception of the NABC Recycled Rides program in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council have donated more than 2,400 vehicles valued at more than $34 million.
