Penske Automotive Group has proudly teamed up with Paralyzed Veterans of America’s Mission: ABLE campaign. With one donation, you can help support Mission: ABLE and ensure that veterans with disabilities receive the care, benefits and job opportunities they’ve earned and deserve.
Now through December 31, 2015, Penske Automotive Group will invite its service customers to donate $1 or more to benefit Paralyzed Veterans of America’s Mission: ABLE campaign when servicing a vehicle at a U.S. Penske Automotive Group Dealership. To maximize the donation, Penske Automotive Group will match each donation up to $500,000.
“Paralyzed Veterans of America’s work for veterans is admirable and important. It’s an honor for Penske to be a part of this fundraising effort. Through this great partnership, we can continue to change lives of our American heroes and remind citizens, communities and ourselves, that service really does matter.” – Robert H. Kurnick Jr., Penske Automotive Group President
Currently, more than 44,000 American veterans live with paralysis; spinal cord injuries can cost up to $3 million per person in health care expenses and veterans benefits aren’t always guaranteed; and more than 85 percent of severely disabled veterans are currently unemployed. Paralyzed Veterans of America provides free programs and services to these veterans to help them live full and productive lives.
Combined with Paralyzed Veterans’ engagement with Penske Truck Rental, this new campaign makes Penske Corporation the largest contributing corporate donor in this current fiscal year.
