Service King Joins Progressive in Keys to Progress Veterans Day Giveaway

Service King Collision Repair Centers, as part of its continued pledge to serve military families across the country, partnered with Progressive Insurance this Veterans Day for its annual Keys to Progress® initiative. As part of the partnership, Service King teammates volunteered time and resources to refurbish five vehicles used in donations to veterans and their family members at various Progressive Service Centers across the U.S.

Service King is one of several National Auto Body Council members partnering with Progressive in the giveaway of more than 130 newly-refurbished vehicles as part of the 2015 Keys to Progress® event. The giveaways are also made possible through the efforts of parts vendors, local charity organizations and many more key players.

“Partnering with Progressive in its Keys to Progress initiative aligns with our greater mission of serving veterans across the country,” said Chris Abraham, Service King CEO. “The selfless sacrifice our military veterans make to protect the liberties and freedoms that we enjoy every day has inspired our team to give back in every way we can. We’re honored to extend our gratitude in the form of five newly-refurbished vehicles to help these deserving heroes move forward in life.”

On Wednesday, Service King teammates joined in giveaways at Progressive Service Centers in Altamonte Springs, Fla., Malvern, Pa., Oklahoma City, Federal Way, Wash. and West Palm Beach, Fla. In addition to Wednesday’s Keys to Progress® event, Service King is in the midst of its Mission 2 Hire initiative, which aims to hire 500 military veterans and family members in the next five years.

The Keys to Progress initiative is made possible each year as Progressive, together with NABC member collision repair centers, collaborate to recycle and donate vehicles for use in the program. Collision repair professionals then volunteer to restore each vehicle to like-new condition in time for donations to deserving military families and organizations.

Since 2013, Progressive’s Keys to Progress® and its partners have provided more than 300 deserving military families and organizations with reliable transportation.

Service King has also partnered with NABC in its Recycled Rides Program through vehicle donations in several communities this year including Phoenix, Detroit, Decatur, Ga. and more.
