Each year, Caliber Collision teammates all across the country volunteer their spare time to restore donated vehicles and gift them to deserving local veterans, citizens and organizations. In partnership with the National Auto Body Council (NABC), generous insurance companies, local businesses and non-profits, Caliber Collision has been able to gift more than 350 newly restored rides since 2012 through the Recycled Rides® program.

Our insurance partners provide donated vehicles and our local partners provide parts and tools, but you can also make a difference by donating to events in your area. In addition to the refurbished vehicle, we also fill its trunk with gifts and supplies for the recipient and his or her family. In the past, this has included children’s toys, diapers, cookware, groceries, cleaning supplies and even electronics. To donate, stay tuned for Recycled Rides® giftings coming to your area and visit your local Caliber Collision to learn more.

As we head into the holidays, the season of giving is officially upon us. And, while we participate in Recycled Rides® year-round, we are especially busy during November and December. Restoring lives is more than just fixing cars, it’s thanking our veterans, helping our communities, giving back to nonprofits and making a difference in the lives of everyone we encounter. Recycled Rides® is just one of the ways we fulfill our Purpose—Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life®.
