H&V Collision Center, N.Y., announced it will team up with GEICO to provide three cars to military families during an August 6th Tri-City ValleyCats game.
The donation of the three refurbished vehicles is the latest donation of vehicles by H&V in recent years, with a number of donations to military families, including the donation of three vehicles during a minor league hockey game.
The donation of the three vehicles by H&V and GEICO will take place at the ValleyCats game at the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium on August 6th. The event will start at 4:30 p.m. and the vehicles will be revealed during the game.
H&V has supported a number of causes and organizations to support veterans in recent years, and employs a number of veterans at the seven H&V facilities throughout the Capital Region and Hudson Valley. H&V has been recognized by local veteran organizations for their support of veteran causes.
“We owe our veterans and their families our gratitude and thanks for providing us the freedom we enjoy today,” said H&V’s Vartan Jerian Jr. “H&V is proud to join with GEICO to provide vehicles to three deserving veterans and their families. These donations show our veterans that their service is appreciated, respected and remembered. These are moving events, and H&V is honored to join with our partners to make these donations possible.”
The donation process takes months. H&V crews work with GEICO and other partners to select and refurbish vehicles to high standards before the donation.
Along with the donation of the vehicles, H&V has joined as a sponsor of the ValleyCats for the 2016 season of the Penn League Class A franchise.
