“I’m proud to continue our partnership with this fantastic initiative and to provide another vehicle to a family in need,” said Matt Ebert, founder and CEO of Crash Champions. “Our mission at Crash Champions extends far beyond the body shop. We aim not only to be the premier collision repair provider in the country, but a stellar corporate and community citizen. Jacquetta Love is a single mother of three who manages health problems on top of her household. With this refurbished SUV, Jacquetta will no longer need to rely on expensive ride-hailing applications for her employment, as well as her many responsibilities at home. This donation is another great example of how the NABC Recycled Rides® program creates a meaningful impact at a hyper local level, and we look forward to continuing to support this initiative for years to come.”
