Collision repair is about people helping people

who find themselves in a difficult situation, often through no fault of their own. It’s not just about putting cars back together — it’s about making people whole again. The collision repair community — including body shops, paint, parts, equipment and insurance companies — has been doing this for a long time.

And sometimes, the collision industry goes above and beyond the call of duty to make things a little bit brighter for those less fortunate. This section honors the shops and suppliers that take that additional step.

Long Island Veterans to Receive 10 Vehicles

The Long Island Auto Body Repairmen's Association will present the 6th Annual Recycles Rides Give-A-Way at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Hall, 31 Horseblock Road, in Centereach, N.Y. at 9 a.m., September 20. Refreshments will be sponsored by Enterprise Rent-a-Car.

The VFW Suffolk County N.Y. Council helped locate the Veterans who need reliable transportation.

Seven Long Island-area collision repair shops refurbished the vehicles to help with this project for the Veterans including The Collision Centers of Patchogue, The Collision Centers of Riverhead, The Collision Centers of Babylon, Bi-County Auto Body in Smithtown, Master Collision in Rockville Center, Burnside Auto Body ~ Inwood, Matt’s One Stop Auto Body in Sound Beach, and the BOCES of Nassau school.
