As part of our ongoing support of military members and their families, we recently joined forces with Progressive® Insurance, the National Auto Body Council (NABC) and others in the collision industry for the third annual Keys to Progress® program. The one-day, nationwide event provided more than 130 newly refurbished vehicles to deserving military members and their families on Veterans Day. The recipients were selected by local VFW chapters and other veteran organizations.
The Keys to Progress vehicle giveaways, spearheaded by Progressive, took place at 60 Progressive Service Centers across the country. For the third consecutive year, Enterprise provided six months of automobile insurance for each donated vehicle to ensure recipients were well covered. We also helped transport families to the giveaway events.
