For the second consecutive year, Pep Boys and Icahn Automotive Group is supporting veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families as an affiliate of Progressive’s Keys to Progress program, which on November 7 will present refurbished vehicles to more than 100 veterans in over 60 locations.
In addition to their extensively updated vehicles, recipients will receive a $300 gift card that can be redeemed when their vehicles need recommended maintenance at any of the approximately 1,000 Pep Boys locations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
“We are proud to support Progressive’s Keys to Progress program again and make a positive impact on the lives of deserving veterans and their families,” says Brian Kaner, CEO-service, Icahn Automotive. “We respect the sacrifices that every member of the military has made, including many of our employees, and thank them for their service to our country.”
Pep Boys will have representation at each of the local Keys to Progress events on November 7 to personally present the company’s packages, each including the gift card, roadside emergency kit and other items.
In addition, Pep Boys Mobile Crew, a team of trained professional technicians who provide on-location maintenance and repair services, will help with final preparation of the vehicles being presented to recipients during the Keys to Progress event at Progressive’s campus in Mayfield Village, Ohio.
Joining Pep Boys Mobile Crew will be partner Shell TapUp, a mobile fueling service that delivers Shell fuels and cleaning direct to vehicles for businesses and consumers, which will provide recipients their first tank of gas before driving away. Pep Boys offers a 10% discount on automotive service and parts to all active, reserve and retired military personnel, and is a proud employer of veterans and reserve members of the military.
Progressive’s Keys to Progress program provides reliable transportation to help military veterans and their families move forward in life. With this year’s nationwide event, the program will have provided more than 700 refurbished vehicles to veterans and veteran organizations.
