Boggs Auto Collision car giveaway brings smiles to family's faces

South Jersey Times -- For nearly a decade, Boggs Auto Collision Rebuilders has given one deserving individual at least one reason to be grateful each year around the holiday season.

This is pretty nice but what the story doesn't say is that the company can write this off as a business expense. So how much of a donation is it really?
