In observance of Veterans Day, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is once again teaming up with Progressive Insurance for its annual Keys to Progress program.
On Monday, more than 100 veterans will receive newly refurbished vehicles at events in over 60 locations nationwide. Since the program began in 2013, more than 700 vehicles have been donated to veterans and their families. Enterprise Rent-A-Car will provide six months of automobile insurance to the recipient of each donated vehicle, just as it has done for the past six years.
Progressive teams up with several organizations including the National Auto Body Council, The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, Veracity Research Co. Investigations, Copart, Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc., Pep Boys, local body shops, and several military charities to make the Keys to Progress program a reality.
Currently, military veterans and members of the National Guard and Reserves make up more than 10% of Enterprise Holdings’ total U.S. workforce. In addition, as a member of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, Enterprise employs more than 2,000 military spouses.
Fisher House Foundation
Since 2013, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation – the philanthropic arm of Enterprise Rent-A-Car – has committed more than $6 million to the Fisher House Foundation. The nonprofit organization provides no-cost lodging to the families of veterans receiving treatment at military medical centers.
In fiscal year 2019, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation donated $1,037,000 to Fisher House. This year’s gift included the Foundation’s $1 million annual pledge and an additional $37,000 that was donated at the request of Enterprise employees as part of their charitable contributions each year. This money was used to help build homes across the country and, to date, donation requests from employees have funded the construction of 82 homes.
