MINNEAPOLIS, MN – (December 5, 2014) – ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national damaged vehicle repair company, is pleased to announce in partnership with the Progressive Group of Insurance Companies’ annual Keys to Progress® program and the National Auto Body Council, the gifting of a refurbished Ford F-150 to Wounded Warriors.
Staff Sergeant Roy Shaver accepted the like-new truck on behalf of the Wounded Warriors during a Veteran’s Day gifting ceremony on November 11, at the Indianapolis Service Center, a one-stop facility where Progressive handles claims and coordinates repairs for customers. Wounded Warriors will use the newly refurbished Ford F-150 in day-to-day activities and outreach in the community.
The Keys to Progress organization and members of the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program work to repair and donate vehicles to deserving families and community service organizations throughout the United States.
The Ford F-150 truck was donated by Progressive Insurance and repaired by ABRA Auto Body & Glass with generous donations from LKQ/Keystone, PPG Automotive Finishes, Elimidents paintless dent repair, Indy Tire Center, Dr. Vinyl, ERAC, and Jimmy Buff-It’s Auto Detailing.
“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.”
“We are deeply honored to have the opportunity to work with our partners to give a
helping hand to Wounded Warriors,” said Steve Moskovsky, ABRA’s Indianapolis
district manager. “We are privileged to give back to an organization that supports
our Veterans who have given so much. Offering our time and resources is the least
we can do to help Veterans in the community.”
