WASHINGTON, March 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Paralyzed Veterans of America – the nation’s premier nonprofit of choice for disabled veterans, their families, and caregivers – today announced it received a donation of more than $1 million from long-time partner and veteran supporter Penske Automotive Group. The amount includes donations from Penske Automotive Group and Premier Truck Group, alongside a company match of $500,000.
“The entire PVA Family – to include our members, volunteers, and staff across the U.S. – cannot thank Penske Automotive Group, Penske Truck Group, their employees, and generous customers enough for their heartfelt donations and ongoing support,” said Charles Brown, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “With inflation rates rising and COVID-19’s impact still being felt, these funds are vital, greatly appreciated, and will continue to go towards delivering on our mission of providing more life-changing programs and services to support our veterans in need.”
Penske Automotive Group has raised more than $7 million since becoming a PVA partner in 2015. This year’s donation, which was part of Penske Automotive Group’s 2021 Service Matters campaign, will go directly towards helping veterans with spinal cord injuries and diseases, like MS and ALS, with quality, specialized medical care and treatments, the accessible vehicles and homes they need, the jobs they want, and the benefits they deserve.
“There is no greater way to kick off our eighth year of partnership with PVA than by bestowing them with a donation to help our nation’s veterans,” said Robert H. Kurnick Jr., Penske Automotive Group President. “This donation would not be what it is today without our customers and employees, who have embraced PVA’s important work, generously gave, and supported our initiative from the start – and we thank them all. As we enter a new year, we look forward to supporting even more veterans and helping them live fuller, more productive, and independent lives.”
