To date, the WWP has served over 95,000 serviceperson’s and their families.

Team PRP North East is a network of 14 auto-recyclers who work together as partners to provide overnight service and top quality auto parts to body shops, mechanical repairers, and the general public.  Browns Auto Salvage, in Bomoseen, is the groups only partner in Vermont.
