H&V is the only collision repair facility in upstate New York to become an Audi authorized collision repair facility for Audi’s collision repair program. There are currently only 10 other shops in the entire state to earn the Audi designation, with H&V the 11th shop to be certified.
The 2017 donation follows a memorable donation during the summer of 2016 when H&V, GEICO and other partners teamed up at a ValleyCats game for a donation of three cars to three veterans. The vehicles donated on Aug. 19 will be the 18th, 19th and 20th vehicles donated by H&V. Last month, H&V and partners donated a refurbished van to the Vet House in Albany.
The donation will take place on Saturday, July 15 at the Vet House, an area service center for homeless veterans, and is the latest effort by H&V and business and community partners to support veterans in upstate New York.
The van, donated by State Farm and refurbished by H&V, will help with moving veterans as they transition in and out of the Vet House, which provides a transitional residence for up to 28 veterans at a time.
