Keys to Progress 2015

Nov 24th, 2015

Sometimes a reliable set of wheels is all that stands between a veteran and his or her dreams:

James’ story is only the beginning, though.

This Veterans Day we’ll be hosting our third annual Keys to Progress® event in partnership with the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides™ program so that more than 130 of our nation’s veterans and their families can drive away with a refurbished car.

And drive into a brighter future.

A future like Francine Morgan’s, a 2014 Keys to Progress recipient. Watch as she describes how much her ride means to her:


Giving back to those who give so much

So how do these cars get refurbished in the first place?

Watch as Caliber Collision technicians volunteer their time and talent to breathe new life into a vehicle destined to help a deserving veteran:


Along with the amazing work done by our network body shops, we also receive generous support and contributions from these partners as well:

  • The National Auto Body Council graciously supports the Keys to Progress event as part of its Recycled Rides program.
  • Enterprise provides insurance written by Progressive for each donated vehicle for the first six months and also offers free car rentals to transport families to the Progressive Service Centers for the event as needed.
  • VRC Investigations, a veteran-owned and operated organization, helps support the recipient selection process each year.
  • The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, powered by AudaExplore, a Solera Company, donates resources to facilitate titling and registration of vehicles for recipients.
  • Two national salvage partners, Copart and Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc., donate some of the vehicles.

Together we look forward to helping more of our nation’s veterans get back on the road (like we did in 2013 and 2014) with Keys to Progress 2015!
