Caliber Collision continued its 2013 Recycled Rides campaign by teaming up in recent weeks with several of its insurance partners to donate vehicles to military veterans in Texas.
The most recent vehicle donation—Caliber’s 11th this year—was part of Progressive’s nationwide “Keys to Progress” Recycled Rides event. Caliber’s Spring, TX, center refurbished and donated a 2002 Ford Explorer to a former Marine, Thomas Griner.
Other veterans who also received refurbished vehicles from Caliber Collision include U.S. Army veterans Henry Johnson and Stephen Fletcher, who received vehicles donated by State Farm Insurance and refurbished by Caliber teams at North Richland Hills and Dallas-Love Field in Texas. The Recycled Rides presentation was a highlight during closing ceremonies of the veteran support organization Carry the Load’s Memorial Day March.
“Our military service men and women give and sacrifice each and every day on our behalf and we at Caliber never take that for granted,” said Steve Grimshaw, President and CEO of Caliber Collision. “We are proud of our many associates who share these same values and who have donated countless personal hours to refurbish and repair vehicles that will help these veterans restore the rhythm of their lives.”
“We especially appreciate the partnership with Progressive, Esurance, State Farm and other insurers as we continue to all work together throughout the year to thank our service men and women by providing them with reliable transportation.”
