PORT CHARLOTTE, FL (April 25, 2024) – On Wednesday, April 24, a Phoenix-area mother of four experienced a life-changing event – the presentation of  a vehicle to provide her the ability to take care of her family – thanks to the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program along with car donor Nationwide and collision repair partner Crash Champions Collision Scottsdale. The event was sponsored by NABC member Auto Body Parts Association (ABPA), which held its annual meeting and business conference at the Scott Resort, Scottsdale, AZ. Since 2017, the ABPA has sponsored NABC Recycled Ride® presentations at each of its annual conferences, helping to give back and change lives throughout the country.

NABC®, Nationwide and Crash Champions presented a beautifully refurbished 2017 Ford Edge Titanium to recipient Corina Kelley.

Corina Kelley has survived a series of challenges throughout her life, starting at an early age, including homelessness, all the while dealing with the needs of her four children, including some with special needs, and doing it all without reliable transportation.  The charity Raising Special Kids has provided her with much-needed support and resources to help with her children.  This vehicle donation now enables her to get her children to school and appointments and will generally relieve some of the pressure of being a single mom.

“When I pick my children up from school, that’s our special time,” Kelley shared. “It’s a moment when we can talk about our day, or sing songs, or just be silly together. I am just so grateful that you all have blessed us with this vehicle. We are so appreciative of this donation.”

Mike Fitzpatrick, Crash Champions vice president for southwest markets, spoke at the presentation:

“It is our pleasure to do our part to get this vehicle, donated by Nationwide Insurance, ready for the Kelley family. This is one of the best events we have all year, and we are proud to participate in the NABC Recycled Rides program.”

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.

Additional partners in the NABC Recycled Rides® presentation included Cars for Charity, Advanced Remarketing Services, Copart, Autozone, Big Brand, and Premier Services.


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
