The presentation was held at the DePalo and Sons Auto Body in Huntington, NY.
The deserving recipient, Kenroy French, was selected by the Office of Veteran Affairs. He received a 2016 VW Passat donated by GEICO and repaired by the team at DePalo and Sons.
French is currently enlisted in the Army National Guard. He originally enlisted in 2019 and has served proudly ever since.
He was recently stationed in Plattsburg, NY, and is currently located in Long Island while being assigned to the COVID Mission, where he is tasked with helping the vaccination rollout efficiency and organization. French is married and is a proud father of his young daughter.
“I’m very honored and fortunate to have been selected for this gifting and is very grateful for all of the parties involved,” said French.
