ABRA Auto Body & Glass Donates Vehicle to Family Support Center of Utah
November 18, 2010

ABRA Auto Body and Glass is donating a reconditioned vehicle through National Auto Body Council's (NABC) Recycled Rides program to the Family Support Center of Utah. The official vehicle give-away will take place on Monday, November 22, at 2 p.m. at ABRA's location in Murray, Utah.

"We chose Family Support Center because of their great reputation in helping families get back on their feet," says Greg Peeters, director of ABRA Auto Body and Glass-Utah. The specific family that will receive the vehicle is a couple with a one-year-old who was born with an auto-immune deficiency; the infant was born with one leg and is also blind, and currently weighs only 12 pounds. The couple, whom ABRA has only named as "Carlos and Latisha," have no family closeby and no vehicle to get to doctor's appointments for the child, according to a press release issued by the company.

"After meeting with the executive director of the Family Support Center and Carlos and Latisha, we knew we made the right choice," Peeters says. "Hopefully this will help make their holidays a little bit brighter."

The donated vehicle is a 2000 Toyota Rav4 4x4. Recycled Rides recruits NABC member shops, insurers, paint suppliers and parts vendors to contribute in their own specific ways to refurbish and donate vehicles to well-deserving families and organizations throughout the United States.
