“We are thrilled to kickoff this year’s Champions in Giving event by helping to raise awareness and donations for Feeding America,” said Natalie Zajc, Vice President of Marketing at Crash Champions. “Feeding America provides meals to more than 40 million people each year, and with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to take a toll on the country’s health and wellbeing, its work has never been more important. Ever since the opening of our first shop in New Lenox, Crash has been committed to giving back to the local neighborhoods that we serve. As we continue to grow our footprint across the nation, we look forward to bringing our dedication to community service into new geographic regions.   Supporting Feeding America is a prime example of these important efforts.”

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 50 total locations across Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa and California. What makes Crash Champions truly different is its employees – each one embodies everything that it takes to be a true Champion. For more information, visit, and watch our video here.
