Enterprise Rent-A-Car 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.

This one-day, nationwide event provided more than 130 newly refurbished vehicles to military members and their families on Veterans Day. The vehicle giveaways took place at 60 Progressive Service Centers across the country.

For the third consecutive year, Enterprise Rent-A-Car provided six months of automobile insurance for each donated vehicle. Enterprise also helped transport families to the giveaway events, according to the company.

“With our rich military heritage and strong relationships within the collision repair industry, continuing our collaboration with the Keys to Progress program was a natural choice,” said Mary Mahoney, Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s vice president, insurance replacement division. “Keys to Progress is one of the ways we aim to make life better for those who have dedicated their lives to helping us.”

Progressive worked in collaboration with local NABC member collision repair centers to recycle and donate vehicles involved or recovered in a claim. The vehicles were fully restored as an extension of the NABC’s Recycled Rides program, a collision industrywide collaboration to repair and donate vehicles to those in need.
