Progressive Celebrates 10 Years of the Keys to Progress® program with more than 900 Vehicles Donated to Military Families

Program Honors Veterans Across the Country on November 10th

MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio — Nov. 3, 2022 — Progressive Insurance® announced today its 10th annual Keys to Progress® vehicle giveaway on November 10, 2022. Ahead of Veterans Day,100 veterans and military-related organizations across the country will receive the keys to vehicles that will provide reliable transportation, helping them and the veterans they serve get back on the road and move forward in life.

Progressive worked with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to locate certified vehicles from Enterprise’s U.S. fleet of high-quality, late-model used cars, vans and SUVs that could be purchased and given away with funds provided by Progressive. The vehicles, with six months insurance paid for by Enterprise, will be delivered to veterans, bringing the total number of donated vehicles through the Keys to Progress program to more than 900 since 2013.

 

“As we celebrate this ten-year milestone, it is humbling to see the impact this program has made since its inception,” said Tricia Griffith, CEO at Progressive. “Our Keys to Progress vehicle giveaway program is just one way we celebrate our nation’s veterans at Progressive, and we are so proud to be able to help veterans who have given so much for this country. We look forward to continuing to do this program for many years to support our commitment to our service men and women.”

Progressive’s Keys to Progress giveaway program is a reality thanks to the assistance of the following organizations:

  • Enterprise Rent-A-Car locates certified vehicles from their U.S. fleet of high-quality, late-model used cars, vans, and SUVs for purchase to be given away with funds from Progressive.  Enterprise also funds the first six months of insurance for the vehicles. Policies are written by Progressive.
  • Veracity Research Co. Investigations, a veteran-owned and operated organization, helps support the recipient selection process each year.
  • Insurance Auto Auctions Inc. provides a 12-month powertrain protection plan for the vehicles.
  • The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, provides resources to facilitate the vehicle donations, as well as titling and registration of some vehicles for recipients.
  • Local charities, which help to identify veteran recipients in each region.

 

“The evolution of this program, including the expansion of gifting commercial vehicles to veteran-focused organizations and nonprofits, has allowed hundreds of our veterans facing tough circumstances a little relief – whether that is a personal vehicle to help them get where they need to go, or a commercial vehicle to support their small business,” said John Murphy, Progressive Claims President. “We know that for many veterans, transportation to work, school, medical appointments or even social events is not always accessible, and we are honored to provide them with reliable transportation so they can live the lives they deserve.”

 

Interested in applying to be a future recipient? Veterans need to be sponsored by a veteran-friendly, non-profit organization to submit their request. If unfamiliar with an organization, veterans can visit VA.gov to find a local veteran office or contact their local VFW post. Applications are reviewed starting in May of each program year.
