CHICAGO, Jan. 28, 2021 — Crash Champions, LLC (“Crash Champions” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s largest independent collision repair MSOs with a leading presence in both the greater Midwest and Southern California markets, today announced that it has raised $16,172 for Feeding America, the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States. During the months of November and December, Crash Champions’ customers, employees and local community members showed their support for ending nationwide hunger by donating $11,172 to the fundraiser. Including a $5,000 corporate match, the total amount raised by the Champions in Giving event will enable Feeding America to provide over 161,000 meals to children and families in need.
“We are incredibly grateful for and proud of the generosity displayed by the members of the Crash Champions family,” said Natalie Zajc, Vice President of Marketing at Crash Champions. “The coronavirus pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the prevalence of food insecurity across the country, and Feeding America’s established infrastructure and national footprint make it uniquely positioned to help the people who need it most. The funds raised by the campaign far exceeded our initial expectations, and the event’s success demonstrates we are a powerful team that can make a big difference in our local communities. As we look to the future, our hope is to hold similar events to benefit other worthy causes.”

About Crash Champions
Crash Champions began in 1999 with a small shop in New Lenox, IL, called New Lenox Auto Body. After over 15 years of owning a small neighborhood collision center, Matt Ebert wanted to bring his vision to towns throughout the Chicagoland area. In 2014, the company’s name was changed to Crash Champions-New Lenox and the brand began to grow. Since 2014, the Crash Champions organization has grown to have numerous collision centers throughout the Chicago market and became a regional leader in collision repair. In 2020, with Crash Champions’ historic success, the company began its rapid growth strategy with its first out-of-market acquisition located in Columbus, OH. Today, Crash Champions is the 5th largest collision repair MSO, with 60 total locations across Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and California. What makes Crash Champions truly different is its employees – each one embodies everything that it takes to be a true Champion.
