Crash Champions, the nation’s largest founder-led automotive collision repair operator, today announced the organization joined with the National Auto Body Council® (NABC®), Allstate, and local non-profit partners to change the life of a deserving single father and U.S. Air Force veteran.

Lorenzo Mathis, who was nominated for the giveaway by the Veterans Administration HUD-VASH, received keys on Wednesday (February 21) to a fully-restored Kia Sportage as part of the NABC® Recycled Rides program. 

As part of the giveaway, local auto body repair technicians from Crash Champions’ Aurora, Colorado repair center volunteered their time to fully restore the vehicle for Wednesday’s event. 

The vehicle was donated to Crash Champions for a full restoration by Allstate. 

“On behalf of the entire Crash Champions team, we are honored to lend a helping hand to Mr. Mathis and his family, who have given so much to our country,” said Matt Ebert, founder and CEO of Crash Champions. “As a long-time sponsor of the NABC Recycled Rides® program, we understand the impact safe and reliable transportation can have on a family in need, and we are always grateful to support such an important effort.”  

Crash Champions is a proud Level One partner with NABC® and serves customers coast-to-coast at more than 615 high-quality collision repair centers.
