Military single mother and family receives donated vehicle

Fix Auto Collision and USAA presents a refurbished 2022 Toyota Corolla in ongoing support of veterans

San Diego—A single mother who is on active duty with the U.S. Navy experienced was presented a vehicle to provide her transportation she needs since an accident with the family car, thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides program along with car donor USAA and repair partner Fix Auto Collision Poway in San Diego.

NABC, USAA and Fix Auto Collision Poway presented the refurbished 2022 Toyota Corolla to Olusola Smith. This gifting was part of USAA’s ongoing commitment to supporting veterans and their communities.

Smith, a sailor on active duty in the U. S. Navy, is a single mother of two. She has depended on friends for rides to work and for her children’s needs since the family car was totaled. The NABC Recycled Rides donation will make it possible for Smith to fulfill the important family responsibilities of shopping for food and attending PTO meetings, as well as getting the children to school and herself to work. She was nominated for NABC Recycled Rides by STEP, Support the Enlisted Project.

“This gift means the world to me,” said Smith. “It means that I can provide for my children. I will be able to contribute to a better quality of life for not only my children but for myself.”

NABC Recycled Rides is a unique 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 3,300 vehicles valued at some $47 million.

Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides presentation include Cars for Charity and Advanced Remarketing Services.
