SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TrueCar Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE) announced today it is partnering with DAV (Disabled American Veterans) as part of its DrivenToDrive program. DAV is a non-profit charity that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families, helping more than 1 million veterans in positive life-changing ways each year. Launched late last year, DrivenToDrive honors injured American veterans by helping them get back behind the wheel of a retrofitted vehicle.
In celebration of the new partnership with DAV, active members of the military, veterans or immediate family members can enter to win a vehicle through March 18, 2018 at truecar.com/driventodrive
"DAV is grateful to partner with TrueCar and their DrivenToDrive program, which is designed to help the brave men and women who served our country regain their freedom and independence," said Marc Burgess, CEO of DAV. "Awarding a vehicle is a special way to recognize the sacrifices a veteran made and dramatically improve his or her quality of life. We're additionally grateful to TrueCar for supporting DAV's mission to honor our heroes and make them aware of the assistance we provide at no cost."
"Driving is an expression of freedom and independence," said Lucas Donat, Chief Brand Officer at TrueCar. "Helping injured veterans, those that have sacrificed so much for our freedom, to drive again is a cause close to our heart. Last year we had such an incredible response that we are excited to open up the contest again, and we're honored to be working with DAV."
This marks the second year TrueCar is running it's DrivenToDrive vehicle giveaway. Last year, TrueCar presented the keys to a brand-new cargo van to its first-ever winner.
