Paralyzed Veterans of America announces the receipt of a $913,000 donation from Penske Automotive Group.
The funds were raised via Penske’s “Service Matters” campaign, which allowed customers to make a donation whenever they had their car serviced at a Penske Automotive Group Dealership location. Penske matched all monies donated by customers, up to a total contribution of $500,000.
All funds donated and matched go toward Paralyzed Veterans of America’s programs for paralyzed veterans and their families, such as benefits assistance, employment counseling, and adaptive sports programs, according to a media release from Paralyzed Veterans of America.
“We cannot thank Penske Automotive Group enough for this significant contribution. It will undoubtedly have a direct, positive impact on the veterans we serve,” says Al Kovach, Jr, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America, in the release.
“We thank our customers and Penske employees for embracing the ‘Service Matters’ campaign and the importance of the work performed by Paralyzed Veterans of America,” states Robert H. Kurnick, Jr, president of Penske Automotive Group, in the release.
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership for another year to help make a difference in the lives of our veterans and their families,” he adds.
