The presentation took place at the Five Star Collision Center in Macon. Other partners in the presentation included 1-800 Charity Cars. In 2022, GEICO donated over 50 vehicles to the Recycled Rides program.

“This is the fourth contest we’ve run this year – and we have two more planned,” said Charel Lock, director of operations for Five Star Collision Centers. “It’s something close to my heart, so we try to give back to our community as often as possible.”

Recycled Rides is a program in which companies 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 program’s inception in 2007, NABC members have donated nearly 3,000 vehicles worth some $42 million.
