Stazione spends countless hours on the road every day, meeting with veterans and working with the non-profit, Director of Wind Therapy for 22Kill to raise awareness and offer programs to combat suicide.

Before Friday, Stazione hadn’t owned a car for several years and had to rely on friends for transportation.

Technicians at its Dallas Non-Drive location volunteered personal hours to refurbish the vehicle for Stazione.

Caliber Collision and its industry partners have donated nearly 350 cars valued at over $4.5 million to military service members, veterans, families and others in need of reliable transportation.
