North Carolina Maaco Gifts Free Paint Job to Local VFW Post


Maaco recently held its first ever “Love Your Car” campaign, in which Maaco owners gifted one lucky customer with a free paint job. Through this “surprise and delight” effort, owners across the country nominated their customers for the chance to receive the gift.

Pete Schwartz, who owns Maaco Greenville, recently completed an estimate for the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7032 in Greenville, NC. The post is working to undergo building and grounds renovations, and there is one piece that was in need of a makeover. Maaco Greenville was proud to gift the organization with a freshly painted 1941 U.S. Army cannon boom.

“This cannon has been on the front lawn of the Veterans of Foreign War Greenville Post’s lawn for decades,” said Schwartz. “We were honored to work on this project and give the cannon a face lift, as the members of the organization have given so much to the country.”

Veterans of Foreign Wars is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans in various facets. The organization was founded in 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War and Philippine Insurrection created local organizations to secure rights and benefits following their service. From here, the organization has grown tremendously, with posts across the U.S. and more than 1.5 million members.

“At Maaco, we paint anything, but this project was special because it filled my team and I with so much pride,” continued Schwartz. “Seeing the way everyone jumped right in to tackle this project was incredible. I look forward to continuing our efforts in giving back to our deserving community!”
