WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#geicolt;/agt;–GEICO, Caliber Collision and Enterprise know how to show their
appreciation for those in the military and those with close ties to
someone who is. The three companies combined their efforts to present
three military Moms with vehicles that were refurbished to like new
conditions and filled with good wishes from everyone connected with the
vehicle giveaway.

The vehicles were presented to the women during recent ceremonies at
GEICO as part of the Recycled Rides program sponsored by the National
Auto Body Council. GEICO donated the vehicles, Caliber Collision
provided the labor and mechanical expertise and Enterprise gave each
recipient a generous gift card. The vehicles go to families and
organizations that could use a reliable vehicle to continue their
community work and to lessen the financial burden on families.

Receiving vehicles were Gloria Crothers, a volunteer and a member of the
Maryland Chapter of Gold Star Mothers. Her son Marine Sargent Michael
Heed, Jr. was killed in action on July 13, 2009, serving in Afghanistan.
Janice Chance, president of the Maryland chapter of Gold Star Mothers.
Her son Marine Captain Jesse Melton III was killed on September 9, 2008,
serving in Afghanistan, and Lafreda Scurry who honorably served in the
Army for eight years was the third recipient.

“GEICO has a rich history of working with our military customers going
back to 1936 when we first opened for business. This event is an example
of our strong commitment to the military,” said Angela Rinella, vice
president of GEICO’s claims operations. “We at GEICO are honored to
serve those who serve the nation,” she continued.

With the help of the National Auto Body Council and repair facilities
across the country, GEICO has contributed dozens of vehicles this year
and is working toward record giveaways by the end of 2019.
