2017 Benevolence Program

“Our car giveaway makes an immediate difference in someone’s life, and that is very gratifying.”

— Julie Zara

Every year the collision repair industry comes across vehicles that are “written off” by owners or insurance companies. Many times those vehicles simply need body and mechanical work to return to safe, road-ready condition.

Zara's, as part of the Akzo Nobel Acoat® Selected National Benevolence Program, refurbishes at least one vehicle each year for presentation to a deserving individual in the Springfield area. Depending on the availability of vehicles, multiple vehicles have been given away in some years, highlighted by the Christmas time luncheon and giveaway. We work with insurance agents and local vendors to make the experience a fulfilling, community-wide event.

Please contact us if you have a vehicle you might consider donating.
