Jonee Coleman

2021 RecipientArmy

Jonee Coleman thought she’d serve in the military for life, but then a chronic illness forced her to retire and changed her life forever. The transition into civilian life and dealing with her newfound illness caused her mental health to decline.

That’s when Jonee found transition classes for military members.

Nakisha King

2020 RecipientNavy

Nakisha joined the Navy right after high school and served for almost eight years. After having three kids, she left the military but struggled to transition into civilian life. She found herself homeless and sleeping in her car with her kids.

But soon after, things started looking up for Nakisha.

Giving back to those who gave so much

Since 2013, Progressive has been honoring veterans with vehicle donations through the Keys to Progress® veteran vehicle giveaway program. The one-day vehicle giveaway event happens every November and is a strong source of pride for everyone who works here. Employees across the country volunteer to select vehicles to donate, organize fundraising activities to collect money or goods to provide recipient families, and plan memorable vehicle giveaway events for the recipients.

By providing transportation support, our hope is to offer a little relief and improve the lives of military men and women facing tough circumstances—from difficult personal and family health needs to excessive rent burdens, unemployment, and homelessness.

Veteran appreciation

This program is a way for us to come together as a company to give back to people who have given so much for our country.

Event locations

Vehicle giveaways primarily take place at various Progressive offices and Enterprise Rent-A-Car locations across the United States. Recipients are expected to live in or near these communities.

Program affiliates

We work with military and charity organizations to find veterans in need of a vehicle and purchase recent-model used vehicles from Enterprise Rent-A-Car for donation. We also work closely with these organizations to administer this program every year:
