VFW Finds Recipients for Recycled Rides
Military families in need receive reliable vehicles
June 12, 2013
recycled vehicles were presented to military and veterans’ families across the
United States through the Recycled Rides program provided by Progressive
Insurance and the National Auto Body Council (NABC). Recycled Rides was created
four years ago as a way to give back within local communities across America.
This year’s program is centered around helping military families in
appreciation for their service to our country.
The VFW assisted Progressive Insurance and the NABC by
identifying local military families in need of a reliable vehicle. VFW Post
1650 and its Ladies Auxiliary in Topeka, Kan., helped their local Progressive
office locate a family of six living in the area who needed the help.
The recipients serve in the National Guard
and have been riding bikes to work while their children were walking to and
from school. Receiving a car from Recycled Rides will truly have an impact on
their daily lives.
The VFW is proud to have
been able to assist in an effort to help our military families in need and
thanks Progressive Insurance, the NABC and the local body shops that made this
endeavor a reality for many very deserving families.
