Bates Collision Centers is proud to continue our annual tradition that began in 1998 of presenting “new” used vehicles to deserving families through volunteer staff hours and donations each holiday season. The Bates staff have refurbished and presented more than 40 vehicles since 1998; they’ve been a real helping hand up for these families.
Our employees volunteer their time to refurbish a vehicle from each of our centers and fill it with gifts such as toys, gas cards, car seats, and food for the family. The vehicles are presented during a special Awards Presentation and Holiday Reception held in their honor to recognize and reward parents for “Responsible Parenting”.
This unique program focuses on the parent’s tireless efforts to parent “Responsibly” while coping with the daily challenge and hardship of running their household without reliable transportation. We have seen a real impact in the lives of these families through our gifts of transportation.
