PORT CHARLOTTE, FL (April 10, 2024) – A veteran and a single mother each experienced a life-changing event –the presentation of a vehicle to provide them the ability to get to work and family appointments and to overcome tough times–thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program along with car donor Allstate and repair partner Toyota of Richardson.

NABC®, Allstate and Toyota of Richardson, a Berkshire Hathaway Automotive company, presented a fully refurbished 2019 Jeep Cherokee to Nathan Burrow.

Burrow and his family are always eager to go out of their way to put others above themselves. A decorated veteran, Burrow was injured while serving as a medic in the army in Iraq. Burrow is an alumnus of the nine-week Redefine program of the Adaptive Training Foundation, the organization that nominated him for the car donation.  The vehicle will help in his efforts to train other disabled veterans suffering from similar impairments.

“What this means to me is just beyond belief,” said Burrow, reacting to the donation. “I hope that there is a time that we can do it somehow for someone else.”

NABC®, Allstate and Toyota of Richardson also presented a fully refurbished 2017 Toyota Camry to Wainesha Stevenson.

Stevenson and her daughters have shown resilience through tough times.  All three have juggled work, education and the demands of everyday life with an indomitable spirit.  The young women have finished high school and are embarking on higher education and career goals and a brighter life ahead.  The donated car will help them all continue on their journeys.  Family Promise of Irving nominated Stevenson for NABC Recycled Rides®.

Stevenson was elated to receive the renewed vehicle.  “2024 has started out with a little sunshine,” she said at the presentation. “This is a way to get back and forth to work to earn a living for my family. I am here to be a provider and protector for my girls, and this will enable me to do that.”

Tom Wolf, director of strategic accounts, U. S. and Canada for PPG, said of the presentations: “As we look back on the impact of the PPG MVP Conference, I want to express my sincere gratitude to the PPG Business Solutions team and all who contributed. Collaborating with the NABC and Berkshire Hathaway Automotive to gift two NABC recycled rides to deserving families in need exemplifies the power of partnership and generosity. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to making a tangible difference in people’s lives.”

The National Auto Body Council® is the premier organization of collision industry partners dedicated to strategic networking opportunities that positively change lives in the communities we serve. The collaborative membership of the National Auto Body Council® has gifted more than 3,300 vehicles and provided extrication opportunities for some 5,500 First Responders in communities around the country through NABC Recycled Rides®, NABC First Responder Emergency Extrication (F.R.E.E.™) and the NABC® Community Impact program. That effort equates to a 4:1 ROI in dollar value delivered from NABC® membership dollars. The NABC Changing and Saving Lives Foundation, a 501c3 organization, is committed to the goal of driving change for veterans, military members, first responders and families in need, while harnessing the power of the collective membership of the collision repair industry to positively impact communities where we live and work. As demand for NABC® programs like NABC Recycled Rides® and NABC F.R.E.E.™ grows, so do the needs for resources to manage these important programs. Being able to pursue grants, gifts and donations allows NABC to expand these programs to serve those in need and help communities where we live and work. For more information, visit
