In honor of Veterans Day, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is working with Progressive Insurance to donate about 117 refurbished vehicles to members of the military. Taking place on Nov. 11, Progressive’s annual Keys to Progress program will give away vehicles at 57 of Progressive’s service centers.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car will be providing insurance for each donated vehicle for the first six months, says the company. The insurance policies are written by local Progressive agents.

“We chose our service centers as the event locations because they’re the one-stop shops where people get back on the road after an accident,” said Tricia Griffith, president of customer operations for Progressive. “By expanding our Keys to Progress program this year, we hope to get more veterans and their families back on the road and moving forward in life.”

Progressive is working with local National Auto Body Council (NABC) member body shops to recycle and donate vehicles that have been involved or recovered in a claim. The vehicles have been fully restored for veterans and their families, says the company.
