WASHINGTON, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Paralyzed Veterans of America proudly celebrates a decade-long partnership with long-time supporter Penske Automotive Group, who donated $1.17 million in 2023 to the nonprofit to support paralyzed veterans nationwide. The amount is composed of donations from generous customers and employees of Penske Automotive Group, along with a matching contribution from the company.

"As we commemorate this remarkable milestone, we express our enduring gratitude to Penske Automotive Group for their unwavering dedication and long-time partnership to serve those who have sacrificed for our country," said Robert Thomas, national president of PVA. "Penske Automotive Group's support helps fuel our mission at PVA and enables us to provide critical support and services to veterans with catastrophic injuries and diseases, like MS and ALS. Together, we have forged an indispensable alliance rooted in our shared values of resilience, service, and compassion, making a profound difference in the lives of paralyzed veterans, their families, and caregivers."

Over the last decade, Penske Automotive Group is responsible for nearly $10 million of donations to PVA. This year's donation, raised through Penske Automotive Group's annual Service Matters campaign, will directly benefit veterans nationwide by providing the resources they need to live full and independent lives.
