NABC Recycled Rides Program 2021

The Utah Down Syndrome Foundation is partnering with GEICO and the Recycled Rides Program, a program of the National Auto Body Council (NABC), to help families or individuals within the UDSF community who need transportation. This program takes preowned vehicles that have salvage titles, has them repaired, and then gifts these vehicles to those in need.  The recipient will be responsible for any maintenance after the car is gifted and insurance approximately three days before registration. There is NO sales tax or donation tax. The body shop will be paying for the titling and registration for the vehicle two days before the gifting.
