Feb. 18, 2013—Keenan Auto Body Inc. has launched a fundraising drive to raise money for the National Auto Body Council's (NABC) Operation Comfort initiative.
Operation Comfort was founded in 2004 and provides opportunities for wounded service members to participate in rehabilitative, adaptive sports and Automotivation, a program where wounded service members can work on cars. The organization also provides family financial assistance and therapeutic trips.
The goal for the fundraiser is to raise $1.5 million to purchase, renovate and fully equip the 30,000 square foot training facility that will house the Automotivation program in San Antonio.
“We believe in this program and appreciate the opportunity to give back to those who have given so much,” said Mike LeVasseur, president and chief operations officer of Keenan Auto Body. “We have moved forward by equipping all 11 of our lobbies with donation pads and free standing posters that depict exactly what the program is all about. We are also matching dollar for dollar everything that we raise.”
Keenan plans on running the fundraising campaign until the $1.5 million goal has been met.
