PORT CHARLOTTE, FL (May 18, 2024) – The widow of a fallen soldier experienced a life-changing event – the presentation of a vehicle to provide her and her daughter the ability to get to work and family appointments – thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program, along with car donor GEICO and repair partner ProColor Collision.

NABC®, GEICO and ProColor Collision Greensboro West presented a fully refurbished 2013 Honda CRV to Amy Dozier.

Sgt. Jonathan Dozier made the ultimate sacrifice in service to his country 16 years ago when he and fellow soldiers were killed by an IED in Iraq.  He left behind his wife Amy and a young daughter.  Their daughter is active in band and art and is looking at colleges now.  Transportation has been a big challenge for both mother and daughter. This gift will ease the financial stress on the family.

From the driver’s seat of her refurbished car, Amy Dozier said she was speechless, but she managed to tell the local television news cameras, “I’m so thankful for the entire community that has shown up for my family.  It’s humbling.”

NABC Recycled Rides® is a unique program in which businesses representing all facets of the collision repair industry team up to repair and donate vehicles to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation. Since the inception of the NABC Recycled Rides® program in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council® have donated more than 3,300 vehicles valued at some $47 million.

The Southeast Collision Conference is a premiere tradeshow and education opportunity for collision repair shop owners, managers and technicians held jointly by the Carolinas Collision Association and the Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association. ProColor Collision Greensboro West is a member of the Carolinas Collision Association.

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
