Profile: Moreno Auto Collision
At the Washington Street gateway of Roslindale Village near Healy Field is Moreno Auto Collision. Juan Moreno and his wife Ana have owned Moreno Auto Collision (the building and business) in Roslindale for 5 years, but they have been in Boston for 20 years, starting their business in Mattapan.
“We came to Roslindale to stay! We are not just a business – we want to provide a sense of family to this community,” said Ana.
Moreno Auto Collision provides a sense of family in a lot of ways – including reducing worker exposure to toxic chemicals. Not only do they run a successful business, but they have also been recognized by the Boston Public Health Commission for their environmental leadership as they have eliminated the use of hazardous chemicals, replacing them with safer alternatives.
Ana and Juan are also collecting backpacks and school supplies for students in the Dominican Republic for the organization Heartbeats of Love. If you’re interested in donating, the last day to donate a backpack is September 1st.
Fun fact: Moreno Auto Collision provides car rentals for customers undergoing car repair at no extra cost.
