It’s only been a few weeks and this new minivan already has a couple hundred new miles on it! Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) accepted the keys to the vehicle in mid-November at a special ceremony in Glen Burnie. The generous donation came courtesy of Progressive’s Keys to Progress vehicle giveaway program, an initiative that aims to give cars to Veterans across the country as a way for the company to give back to people who have given so much for our country.
WCC team members transport puppies and dogs to hundreds of events each year, so the vehicle is a huge help to the organization.
“This new minivan isn’t just a vehicle, it’s a symbol of the invaluable support that Progressive is extending to Warrior Canine Connection,” said Rick Yount, executive director and founder, WCC. “With this addition, our team can enhance its reach, ensuring that we can safely and efficiently bring the comfort and companionship of man’s best friends to support Veterans in need.”
Progressive has been hosting its one-day vehicle giveaway events since 2013 at locations across the country. Employees across the U.S. volunteer to select vehicles to donate, organize fundraising activities to collect month or goods to provide recipient families, and plan memorable vehicle giveaway events for them.
WCC Veteran Service Dog Team Ashley Frantz and service dog Patty were Viriginia recipients of a vehicle from Progressive this year.
Please join us in saying a heartfelt thanks to Progressive for its amazing generosity!
