Kansas City-based grocer Price Chopper partnered with Cars 4 Heroes to give away 11 cars to 11 veterans on Veterans Day. Cars 4 Heroes is a Kansas City-based charity providing free, basic transportation to veterans, active duty military, first responders and their families who are unable to obtain it on their own.
The recipients represented a range of service men and women, including a Marine who served in Afghanistan and a World War II veteran who served in the Army.
“Each year we strive to find a way that we can say ‘thank you’ to our veterans and whatever we do never feels like enough,” said Casie Broker, chief marketing officer for Price Chopper. “This year it was such a privilege to help provide transportation to veterans and their families.”
Cars 4 Heroes accepts nominations for cars throughout the year. Interested donors can learn more at: cars4heroes.org.
“We’re giving people a tool they can use to change their life,” said Terry Franz, founder of Cars 4 Heroes. “We’re so glad to have Price Chopper’s support to provide reliable transportation to veterans.”
Price Chopper’s 52 Kansas City stores are locally owned by the Ball, Cosentino, McKeever and Queen families, all of whom live in Kansas City and oversee store operations on a daily basis.
