Recycled Rides program provides free cars for vets

Some veterans received free refurbished cars on Wednesday.



The vehicles were presented through Collision Centers, which refurbishes vehicles and donate them to the veterans through the Recycled Rides program.



"We have paint vendors, parts vendors, towing companies that help us out. My job is to donate the labor to get the car fixed," says Joe Amodei, of Collision Centers.



Amodei says he has given away 11 cars to veterans since the program began back in 2008.
