When insurance firms launched social media initiatives, the results were rewarding.
Golden State Collision Repair Centers, a Bodycraft Company, presented four rehabilitated vehicles to local families in need in Sacramento, California.
According to a release, the vehicles were presented during their sixth annual "Community Benevolence Event" on December 11, at the Golden State Collision Repair Center, 7407 Roseville Road, Sacramento, CA.
In an annual holiday-time event, the Golden State Collision Repair Centers' community benevolence events have benefited twenty- five local families with restored vehicles over the past six years. This year's event was held in partnership with Farmers Insurance Group, Allied/Nationwide Insurance, Safeco Insurance, Cottage Housing, Inc., and St. John's Shelter for Women and Children.
"Each year, there are numerous vehicles that are written off by either the owner or the insurance company. Often these older vehicles are simply in need of mechanical or body work to get them road-ready and safe to drive. Following the merger between Bodycraft and Golden State Collision Centers, we are pleased to embrace this tradition of giving back to our communities," said Bruce Mackie, President of Golden State Collision Repair Centers. "We are thrilled to continue the gesture of helping people who have suffered economically and are working toward bettering their lives. Our hope is that this gift will be a door opened to hope and a brighter future for the recipients and their families."
Local vendors, including John L. Sullivan Chevrolet, Auto West Honda, LKQ, Keystone Automotive, Roseville Toyota, AkzoNobel, Les Schwab Tires, O'Reilly's Auto Parts, Placer Insurance Agency, Robert Nielsen Insurance Agency, Bertolino Insurance Agency, Enterprise Holdings, Inc., Farmers Insurance Group, Safeco Insurance, Allied/ Nationwide Insurance and employees of Golden State Collision Centers, donated their time and services as part of this program.
