Pennzoil® Drives Vehicle Donation For Paralyzed Veterans Of America









HOUSTON, Oct. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Pennzoil ® is honored to announce the donation of three retrofitted Toyota vehicles to three deserving veterans as part of the continued relationship between Pennzoil and Paralyzed Veterans of America. The 2013 Toyota Sienna XLE vans were unveiled and presented to the veterans prior to the 500-mile race at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend. Each veteran recipient received a vehicle of their choosing, retrofitted to their specific need.

Now in the second year of commitment to Paralyzed Veterans of America's, "Mission: ABLE" campaign, Pennzoil once again retrofitted vehicles for injured veterans so that these honorees can reclaim their freedom and love of driving.  Pennzoil donated $250,000 to Paralyzed Veterans of America in 2013, $150,000 of which went to retrofit vehicles for injured veterans, which allows these heroes to revive their independence and love of cars. The recipients of these retrofitted vehicles were selected through the "Love Your Car" program as coordinated by Paralyzed Veterans of America.

"We are proud to work with Pennzoil as they give our deserving veterans the opportunity to drive again, which is a major step toward re-establishing their way of life," said Bill Lawson, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. "By supporting Mission: ABLE through retrofitted vehicle donations, Pennzoil is helping re-instill that sense of freedom for veterans who are physically unable to drive a standard automobile."



The Recipients  "Helping veterans get back on the road and regain their sense of independence is a powerful feeling and was an overall rewarding activation for the brand," said Bree Sandlin, Pennzoil Global Brand Manager. "We couldn't be more pleased to recognize three deserving veterans again this year and get them back in the driver's seat and on their way to reigniting their love of the car."

Harlan "Hank" Ebert, a navy veteran and fishing enthusiast, is currently the only paraplegic professional fishing guide in Minnesota and enjoys giving back to the community. Receiving a retrofitted vehicle for Hank will enable him to continue inspiring others on an even greater scale. "I enjoy helping others become reacquainted with the outdoors after being injured or disabled, whether young or old, newly injured or long term disabled, veteran or civilian," said Ebert.
