LaMettry’s Collision & Glass, together with local vendors, will donate a fully restored 2012 Chevrolet Malibu to a U.S. Marines Corps Vietnam Veteran who earned the Purple Heart Medal. The recipient of the Recycled Rides car, Willie Pargo, is an active volunteer at the Minneapolis VA in need of reliable transportation. In addition, for the past three years he has been a VA Voluntary Service (VAVS) Officer for the Military Order of the Purple Heart. The company says, by Pargo receiving a vehicle, others also also be served.
LaMettry’s will hand over the keys at a ceremony at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at LaMettry’s Collision in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Refreshments will be served with a social hour starting at 10:30 a.m.
The vehicle was donated by American Family, and repaired by LaMettry’s Collision with help from many local vendor partners. This is the sixth vehicle LaMettry’s has repaired and donated through the NABC’s Recycled Rides program.
