Wichita CARSTAR Auto Body & Collision Repair Shops
One of the key tenets of Wichita CARSTAR philosophy focuses on caring for our auto body repar customers and the Wichita, KS community. We have demonstrated this through our support of the Wichita community.
Homeless Family Shelter Receives Gift of Transportation
St Anthony’s Family Shelter received a mini-van to help homeless families and the shelter’s transportation needs.
A 2005 Saturn Relay was donated to Catholic Charities of Wichita on Sept 24th as part of the “Recycled Rides” program. “Recycled Rides” is a community service program where body shops repair and donate recycled vehicles to families in need.
Collision Specialists CARSTAR West location repaired and refurbished the van. AAA Allied Group donated the salvage Saturn to the program.
Rose said this is the fourth time that CARSTAR has partnered with Catholic Charities of Wichita on a Recycled Rides project. “Repairing this van has been a labor of love. Our staff worked hard to make the donation a reality.”
The staff at Collision Specialists West volunteered their personal time to repair this car. Rose said it takes many donations to make the vehicle giveaway possible.
Donating parts and services to make this Recycled Rides possible were: Denton Auto Salvage, BASF, FinishMaster, Auto Hail Repair, The Windshield Shop, Charity Cars and the technicians and staff at Collision Specialists WEST location.
First Responder Emergency Extrication (F.R.E.E.)
