Nominees for Recycled Rides Are Being Accepted (Topeka)

We are proud to partner with Washburn Tech in support of their mission to deliver innovative educational and training opportunities to strengthen the communities they serve. Washburn Tech students in auto collision and auto service technology work with licensed technicians to refurbish cars for families in need.

Washburn Tech was the first educational institution in the nation to participate in Recycled Rides, a National Auto Body Council program, in which students and their mentors repair donated vehicles. It’s real-world work that’s touching real lives.

In May we will be awarding cars 23 and 24 and are searching for qualified individuals to be nominated to receive one of these cars. If you know of anyone deserving of such a gift please nominated them by completing the attached form or have them complete the form themselves.
