H&V Collision Center, the largest independent and family-owned collision repair company in the Capital Region, will once again team up with GEICO to provide three cars to three deserving veterans during an August 19 Tri-City ValleyCats game.
The 2017 donation follows a memorable donation during the summer of 2016 when H&V, GEICO and other partners teamed up at a ValleyCats game for a donation of three cars to three veterans.
The vehicles donated on August 19 will be the 18th, 19th and 20th vehicles donated by H&V. Last month, H&V and partners donated a refurbished van to the Vet House in Albany. The vehicles donated on August 19 will be the 19th, 20th, and 21st vehicles donated by H&V.
The donation of the three vehicles by H&V and GEICO will take place at the ValleyCats game the Joseph L. Bruno Stadium on Saturday, August 19. The event will start at 4:30 p.m. and the reveal of the vehicles will take place during the game, with fans in attendance.
H&V has supported a number of causes and organizations to support veterans in recent years, and employs a number of veterans at the seven H&V facilities throughout the Capital Region and Hudson Valley. H&V has been recognized by local veteran organizations for their support of veteran causes.
“All of us at H&V Collision Center, GEICO and other partners recognize the enormous service by our veterans and their families. H&V is proud to be able to join with our partners for this important donation to help three veterans following their service to our country,” said H&V’s Vartan Jerian Jr.
“These donations show our veterans that their service is appreciated, respected and remembered. Last year was a great and moving event, and all of us at H&V are looking forward to the donation on August 19,” added Jerian.
The donation process takes months. H&V crews work with GEICO and other partners to select and refurbish vehicles to high standards before the donation.
Along with the donation of the vehicles, H&V has joined as a sponsor of the ValleyCats for the 2017 season of the Penn League Class A franchise. H&V is sponsoring the Mayor’s Race, featured during the seventh inning of every ‘Cats home game.
Founded 40-years-ago, H&V has expanded from a two-man operation on Oakwood Avenue in Troy, to the largest independently-owned collision repair business in the Capital Region. H&V Collision Center now operates seven locations in the Capital Region and upstate, including locations in Troy, Queensbury, Saratoga, Colonie, Kingston, Schenectady and Clifton Park.

H&V supports many community and charitable organizations, and H&V’s community service was recognized in a December 2012 cover story in the national trade magazine Fender Bender. H&V also implemented new technology and practices to make its four locations more environmentally safe. H&V has also implemented modern management practices that reduced repair times and made its shops more efficient.
