Hayward Veteran gifted car through Recycled Rides

Updated: October 20, 2020 07:13 PM

A Hayward veteran and mother, Jamie Denn, received a free, repaired car as part of the Recycled Rides program.


Ernie’s Auto Body Shop worked on the damage vehicle and their owner was more than happy to do so.

“It's just been a very humbling experience and it’s not really about us it’s about what the veterans in this country have done for us,” said owner John Magowan.

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, Office of Veteran Employment Services, and the Disabled American Veterans were also part of the efforts to get Jamie Denn into the car.

According to the NABC Recycled Rides website, the program is a nationwide community service project of the National Auto Body Council in which insurers, collision repairers, paint suppliers, and others collaborate to repair and donate vehicles to deserving service organizations.

This organization has provided nearly 250 vehicles over the past few years for families in our programs.
