The presentation was held recently at The Durable Companies collision repair facility in Waterbury, CT.
The deserving recipient was selected by the New Haven Vet Center to receive the 2012 Ford Explorer. GEICO donated the vehicle and the Durable Companies refurbished it. Enterprise also participated, donating six months of insurance for the veteran.
“On behalf of the veteran who received the vehicle last week and on behalf of The New Haven Vet Center, I’d like to offer a huge thank you for the help and resources of the National Auto Body Council,” said John D. Berube, LMFT, of the New Haven Vet Center. “Our recipient is thrilled with the Ford Explorer and he is now able to work occasionally and can get himself to and from appointments at the VA.”
