AkzoNobel Benevolence Program Marks 10-Year Milestone

In an effort to spread goodwill during the Christmas season as well as to promote collision repair awareness, the AkzoNobel Acoat National Benevolence Program gave refurbished vehicles to 60 deserving families and community groups in Canada and the U. S.

Collision repair centres that are members of the Sikkens Acoat Selected program donated their time and efforts in restoring older vehicles that needed a mechanical touch-up and some bodywork done but are perfectly safe to drive. Once the cars are fully repaired and road-ready, shops work locally with charitable organizations to place the vehicle with a particular individual or group in need.

“Over 300 cars have been donated to date,” notes North American services manager Mike Sillay. “Thanks to the generosity and concern that our customers have for their communities, we have been able to effectively sustain the growth of this program.”
